If you can only put up tomatoes in one way, this is the way to go. Homemade tomato paste has an amazing flavor, and really adds richness & depth to recipes calling for tomato paste.

This recipe scales up or down easily to use as many tomatoes as you want. I use ice cube trays to freeze individual 1-oz portions for use in recipes.

  1. 4 lbs tomatoes, cored & roughly chopped
  2. 6 cloves garlic, peeled & chopped
  3. a few tablespoons dried oregano
  4. 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  5. black pepper to taste
  6. 2 bay leaves
  7. Olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F
  2. Cook ingredients on the stove top until softened
  3. Puree softened ingredients (immersion blender works great for this)
  4. Pour the tomato sauce into a roasting pan (non-stick is best, with straight sides)

  6. When your spatula leaves a clear path when sweeping the bottom of the pan, it has reduced sufficiently
  7. Pour into ice cube trays, freeze, then vacuum seal the cubes
