How to make homemade tomato puree

  1. Bring to a boil a large vessel full of water.
  2. Meanwhile, wash and clean the tomatoes. Use bright, red, firm tomatoes for making the tomato puree.
  3. Scoop out and discard the eyes of the tomatoes using the tip of the sharp knife.
  4. Make a criss-cross cuts at the base of each tomato. This helps in easy peeling of skin after blanching.
  5. Put the tomatoes in boiling water and boil for around 3 to 4 minutes. You will notice the skin peeling off.
  6. Using a slotted spoon, remove the tomatoes.
  7. Put in cold water for some time. The refreshing of tomatoes by adding them in cold water stops the cooking process and preserves the rich colour of tomatoes. Also, it helps in easy peeling of skin.
  8. When the tomatoes are cool, peel and discard the skin. Start peeling from the cut portion so, it comes out easily.
  9. Chop the tomatoes roughly.
  10. Transfer them into a mixer jar.

  11. Blend them to a smooth purée without using any water.
  12. If you want a seedless tomato puree, then pass it through a strainer. Use as required.
  13. You can make a jar full of homemade tomato puree and put it in the refrigerator, it comes handy and saves time. It can be stored for a month when frozen.
