Homade Tomato Paste

Homade Tomato Paste

Making your own tomato paste is so easy, you will never buy another one. Promise.

INGREDIENTS

5 kg very ripe tomatoes
2 tbsp sea salt
olive oil

PREPARATION

  1. Cut the tomatoes into quarters and get through a food processor or a blender- with skin and seeds. You can remove them if you want, but I don't
  2. Put the tomato puree in a large pot, add the salt and boil on medium heat for several hours.
  3. As the puree thickens, turn the heat to low and stir constantly
  4. Sterilize the mason jars in the microwave for 20 seconds
  5. While the tomato paste is still hot, transfer it to the hot jars and fill up to the top, tamping it down with a spoon so that there are no air pockets.
  6. Add some olive oil on top, screw the lid on the jar, and flip.
  7. Let it sit flipped overnight so that there is no air left inside the jar.
  8. Keep the jars in a cool place. The paste will keep up to one year.
