  • 10 lbs Tomatoes


  • Quarter the tomatoes and put them in the bowl of a food processor. Process until soupy.
  • Pour through a fine sieve into a pot using a rubber spatula. Push through as much of the tomato mixture as possible.
  • Over a high heat bring to a boil, then turn down to a strong simmer. Allow water to boil off, this will leave you with a thick paste.
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Once the oven is heated turn down to 200ºF (95ºC).
  • Pour the paste onto a clean baking tray.
  • Place the tray in the oven and allow the paste to dry out and thicken further.
  • Keep an eye on this as timing will differ according to the consistency of your paste.
  • Remove and cool once your preferred consistency is reached.
