How to Make Tomato Paste

Step-by-Step

  • 1Scald 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.
