Tomato puree, or sauce, is probably the most famous homemade jam in Italian culinary culture. It is prepared at the end of summer, when the tomatoes are ripe and tasty, so you can retain all the flavor during the winter. It then becomes the main ingredient of many recipes throughout the year: from pasta sauces to pizza.
For those who have a garden, preparing tomato puree at home is undoubtedly one of the best ways to enjoy the harvest without wasting anything. The preparation of the sauce is quite simple, it only requires a little time and attention: as with any other homemade jam, even for tomato puree, it is essential to respect some very important rules to ensure conservation correctly and minimize microbiological risks.
Once ready, you can store the tomato puree in a cool, dry place for several months and use it to prepare many really tasty and authentic dishes!
