Description

A quick and easy way to make your own “canned” tomatoes, while avoiding the BPA toxins of canned goods.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Heirloom Tomatoes

Preparation

Note: This makes the same amount as a 15-ounce can.

Bring a high-sided sauté pan or skillet of water to boil. Add the tomatoes and let boil for 1 minute. Drain the water and drop the tomatoes in a bowl of ice water.

Once the tomatoes have cooled to touch, place them on a cutting board and pull their skin off (it should peel off very easily). Cut the tomatoes in half and remove their core. Dice to preferred size.

In the same pan, add the diced tomatoes and bring to a simmer on medium-low heat. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Do whatever the heck you need to do with them!

Cool tip: if you need crushed instead of diced, you can cut the tomatoes in half and place the cut side on a grater. Grate down to the skin and you are left with peeled, crushed tomatoes! No boiling = 1 less step!

Excellent recipe and super simple to follow! I added green chili’s,basil,italian seasoning, basil, garlic powder,onion powder, salt and pepper. Much better than the canned ones in the grocery store and I will probably never try home canning so this was perfect!
