Part 1

Ingredients Percent (%) Volume
Heirloom tomatoes, chopped 100 40 oz.
Total 100.00

Method of Production:

Part 1

  1. Puree the tomatoes in a commercial blender until completely smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer pushing down on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible; discard the solids.
  2. Pour the mixture into a saucepan or kettle and cook over medium heat until very thick and reduced by 60%, about 20 minutes (will depend on the batch size). If too thin, the curd won't thicken properly.
Note: Commercial tomato paste may be used in place of the heirloom tomato paste.
