Tomato Paste

This is from a 1881 cook book. An oldie but a goodie.

"An excellent sauce, at the season when fresh tomatoes are not to be had, and it is good to thicken soups with."

Ingredients

ripe tomatoes, peeled
salt
cayenne
mace, pounded
nutmeg, to your taste
1/2 pt
cider vinegar to every quart of tomatoes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Scald and peel as many ripe tomatoes as will fill a large, deep stone jar. Set them into a warm oven for an hour. Then skim off the watery liquid that has risen to the top, and press through a sieve. Afterwards, add to your taste: salt, cayenne, mace and nutmeg. Stew with vinegar in a porcelain kettle for 3 hours, stirring frequently from the bottom, till it becomes a smooth, thick paste. Put into small jars or glasses, and cover closely, pasting paper over each.
