How to Make Tomato Puree

  • 1.Make a cross sign with a light cut, on the base of the tomatoes(not on the stalk side).
  • 2.Place the tomatoes in a bowl, boil some water and pour over the tomatoes to cover.
  • 3.When cool enough to handle, peel the tomatoes (the cross sign will make this easier). Chop the tomatoes roughly and blend in a blender and strain.
  • 4.Cook over high heat first, add salt and sugar and cook till it is as thick as you would like-cook till it spurts in the center.
  • 5.You can now freeze it as it is in convenient sized packs.
  • 6.Alternatively, add 1 tsp sodium benzoate in 2 Tbsp boiled water and add to the puree. Pack it in sterilized air tight packs.
  • 7.Now in cold weather it can be stored at room temperature, and in the refrigerator in summer.
