Tomato Paste Concentrate

I got an amazing deal of a box of tomatoes - 10kgs so I was wondering what I could cook up......thought i'd try tomato's the recipe:

1kg tomatoes 
15g sugar
1 Tbsp olive oil

Wash and cut tomatoes in halves, put in bowl and chop on Speed 9 for 15 seconds (go up slowly)
Add sugar and oil and cook for 40 minutes on Varoma on Speed 2
Scrape down sides and puree finer on Speed 5 for 5 seconds.

This didn't make a great deal of tomato paste I must say - I am shocked at how much it reduced to but I think it will taste great - tonight we'll find out, it's going on our pizza's and my husband is the pizza guru - so i'll let you all know what the outcome is.

  1. so what was the outcome. Now much did you make after 1kg of tomatoes. Did you add salt? How long does it keep?...
