So. Many. Tomatoes.

Last weekend was moving day for old fruits and vegetables. I made tomato paste, canned some, made applesauce, and orange smoothie cubes. It was quite the extravaganza.

Tomato paste ended up being a lot different than I expected. I mean in terms of steps.

Started out with a bunch of tomatoes.

Cut them up into bits.

Sautéed them in olive oil until very soft.

Then, since I was too lazy to find the food mill, I used an immersion blender.

Spread the tomato in an oiled hotel pan and cook at 200 for a couple hours. Then up to 300 for a few minutes. You can add spices and herbs if you want, but I went simple.

…and that was just the paste tomatoes.
