EASY HOMEMADE TOMATO PASTE

Plum tomatoes are the best for this old-fashioned recipe; less juice.

If you do not have a food dehydrator, this process takes 10-18 hours in the oven.

Ingredients

plum tomatoes




Place tomatoes in a heavy kettle or stock pot and crush to bring out the juice. Cook until very soft; approximately 1 hour, and then puree in the blender. Return to the stove and cook over very low heat; stirring often. Simmer until it is reduced in half; approximately 2-4 hours.  Ready to use.

Old Fashioned Storing Method:

PREHEAT oven to 145 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with vegetable oil.

Spread the paste out on baking sheets and if you have a dehydrator, use that. Otherwise dry in the oven for 2 hours with the door ajar. Turn the temperature down to 120 degrees and dry another 2 hours. Now increase to 140 degrees.

Dry the tomatoes for another 6 hours (it may take from 10 hours to 18 hours). Roll dried paste into 1 inch balls and let dry at room temperature for another day. Store in airtight jars.

NOTE: You may add herbs such as basil, oregano, garlic and parsley if you wish. You can also dry the paste in the direct sun for 2 days. Cover with cheesecloth to keep bugs away.
