Tomato Puree

Tomato Puree

Whenever you buy tomatoes in bulk , It is best to make puree and freeze it. It comes handy when you are on a hurry.

I pass it   through a sieve to get silky smooth puree. But this is completely optional.

I have also observed that this puree gives tastier  gravy than freshly made puree.

Add these cubes along with fresh tomatoes while making pizza/pasta sauce for an intensified taste.

I freeze it in ice tray. And then the frozen cubes go into a ziplock.
