How to Make Homemade Tomato Puree

  • Wash tomatoes and rinse off dirt if any.
  • Then mark a plus at the bottom of each tomato (this is to ensure even cooking)
  • Boil water (just enough for the tomatoes to immerse).
  • Now slowly add the tomatoes and cook in medium flame for 10 minutes or until the skin starts to split and peel off.
  • Now remove the tomatoes and put it in cold water so that it's easy to handle.
  • Then peel off the skin, discard the stem part.
  • Cut the tomatoes into half and discard the seeds
  • Puree them in a mixer or blender to a smooth paste (Do not add water).
  • Transfer this puree again to pan add sugar and salt (if you are adding)
  • Add vinegar and allow it to boil on simmer until a thick consistency is reached.
  • Though boiling (after the puree is made) is optional it helps in shelf life of the tomato puree.
  • Allow the puree to cook down completely then store it in airtight container.
  • The other way is to pour the puree in ice cube trays and freeze it.
