Preserve Fresh Tomato Paste For A Year (no Refrigeration Or Preservatives) by vanpeele: 8:46pm On May 29, 2016
Hi everyone,

I'm happy to see how everyone's crying for the "common" tomato. Most people (wey get sense) will start preparing for next year by either farming, gardening, or preserving.

My first thread was on very cheap farming but here's another for preserving our darling tomato when it becomes cheap again.

With this method, one can store fresh tomato paste for over a year but guaranteed 1 year, that's if everything's done right.

What you need are
1. Tomato
2. Jam jar (it must be the sort you see in the pics....plastics won't work at all)

Step 1.
Blend your tomato or take it where it's grinded in bulk (you don't have to squeeze the water out unless it's spoilt)

Step 2
Put the blended tomato in a pot (small or big depending on the amount blended). Boil the tomato till all it's water has evaporated and has become paste (try not to let it burn).

Step 3
Let it cool down. Scope some paste into a jam jar till it's filled up, then seal it properly with its cap.

Step 4
Put the sealed tomato paste in a pot of water till it's completely submerged. Allow the pot of water to reach boiling point, then leave to boil for 10-15 mins (don't worry...it won't break). Take them out of the pot and allow to cool. Put then in cartons and store in a cool dry place. No need for fridge. #Shikenan

PLEASE NOTE:
1. No matter the amount of jam jars you put in the pot of water, MAKE SURE THEY'RE COMPLETELY SUBMERGED BEFORE BOILING.

2. JAM JARS WHICH KNIVES WERE USED TO OPEN THEM WON'T WORK. Only normally opened jam jars would work because they're still air tight.

3.Once you open the jar, use the amount you need then refrigerate.

Feel free to ask questions.

You have just created a business idea for a smart guy, who will start the business when tomatoes is very cheap and source for used jam jars all over the country and brand it, sell the paste when the fresh orators are expensive.

That means that jam jar can be use to preserve stew and soup even food so you do have to cook every day but just warm and eat... Fast life

Don't worry..not everything is about money bro..smart guys don't last....wise ones do. The more ideas we share the better "OUR" lives would be in the long run.

Yes even stew and soup work well. A great solution for workers who don't have time. Fast life? hmm...more like sustainable living

You can also use ketchup or salad cream containers. I personally don't like them because of the small opening.

Yeah but nothing beats the taste of fresh tomatoes. Dried or powdered tomatoes don't taste the same.
