unfinished blogs – no. 10 – Home made tomato paste

I’ve been writing this blog for three years this month, and have accumulated many partially written blogs that remain unpublished. I may as well just publish them as is, and if I ever feel inspired to finish any, do so later.

First peel tomatoes:

So, boil water, and pour over tomatoes, leaving them for over a minute

Move tomatoes to a bowl and run cold water into the bowl so it overflows, cooling the tomatoes so you can peel them by hand.

Roughly cut them in half – or rip in half by hand and put into blender

Blend very quickly so it doesn’t become smooth

Put into pot, add rock salt chunks from Brittany (Jusco), bay leaves, dried basil, thyme, oregano, and simmer for 4 hours.  Turn off heat and stand overnight.  Simmer the next day again.
