Peeled tomatoes – if you know this simple recipe, you will never buy them in a store!

As I mentioned HERE, last weekend our kitchen looked as if La Tomatina participants had moved to us for the after party;) Situation, that our kitchen turned into tomato compound, hat to be used as best as possible! What does it mean? The fact, that stopping at ketchup would be a bit crazy and foreshadow the next tomato battle (which is not so inevitable looking at the number of inquiries about ordering :) ). Today, however, the treatise is a bit shorter, because it is about peeled tomatoes. You probably buy them in supermarkets, because you don't know how easy it is to make them at home!
Difficulty Easy
Prep Time: 15 min Cook Time: 20 min Total Time: 35 mins
Servings 9
  • 3 kilograms tomatoes (date, plum or san marzano)
  • bay leaves, allspice
  • salt
  • fresh basil/thyme (optional)
  1. We cut off the stalks, gently cut the tomato (cross cut) and burn in boiling water about 30 seconds. We peel.
  2. We put the prettiest tomatoes in a jar. We blend the remaining tomatoes, season lightly with salt and pour tomatoes with such a sauce.
  3. We add bay leaf and allspice for aroma. You can add a sprig of fresh thyme or basil.
  4. We pasteurize (20min).
We used 0.8-0.9l jars, but it is best to close it in 200-300 ml jars to use the whole portion right away. Then you will get about 9 jars of this miracle from 3 kg of tomatoes.
