Homemade Tomato Paste

My mum always told me never to let tomatoes rot in the garden. Especially since we always ended up with more than we can eat. That is why I have learnt many ways to preserve them. From the homemade tomato powder, to freezing tomatoes and even canning tomato juice. Another great way to store your tomatoes is by using this homemade tomato paste recipe.

Only 1 main ingredient is required for this recipe, which is the tomatoes. I am pretty sure you can use whichever tomatoes you have available. You may opt to use your favorite variety, it is totally up to you. Tomato paste is used in many recipes, having a homemade batch to dip into is always very helpful.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • red peppers (optional)
  • garlic cloves (optional)
  • stock pot
  • strainer
  • food processor
  • large bowl
  • mason jars
  • baking dish

Dust out your food processor and use it to puree your tomatoes. Adding red peppers and garlic cloves is optional and depends on your personal preference. Bring the puree to a boil in the stock pot for at least 3 minutes before straining into the large bowl. Let it sit in the fridge for about 12 hours.

Remove from the fridge and spread in a baking dish. Leave out on the kitchen counter until room temperature is reached. Then bake in your oven at 200 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Fill your jars with the paste and remove any air pockets. Olive oil will help prevent molding, so make sure to top each jar with some oil. Store in your fridge for 6 to 12 months.
