I haven’t found one yet.
So I decided it’s high time I just figure it out on my own. Turns out that it’s much, much easier than I thought and only takes a few ingredients!
What You Need:
- 3 medium tomatoes
- 1 6-7oz jar tomato paste
- 1 t. salt
- 1/4 c. sugar, honey, or turbinado
- 1 t. onion powder
Here’s all you need! I got the Bionaturae Tomato Paste because it’s sold in a glass jar, no worries about BPA. However if that doesn’t concern you as much you can get Muir Glen brand which is cheaper.
Start by chopping up your tomatoes after you clean them up.
And simmer them in a saucepan for a few minutes. I mashed mine up as good as I could.
Add in the salt, onion powder, sugar, and tomato paste and let the mixture bubble together for about a minute.
Remove the mixture from heat and pour into the blender. CAUTION: the mixture is very hot so make sure that you have the lid on tight before you turn it on! Blend until smooth.
Return the mixture to the stove for a little while. It won’t be perfectly smooth because of the seeds so if that will be a problem for your family you will want to stain them out. You can also can this up just like you would tomatoes, I’m planning on doing a big batch later this year!
