  • Add a handful of sea salt to the tomatoes as they are churned into a purée
  • Push the tomato purée through a sieve
  • Squeeze out all the juices and throw away the remaining seeds and skin

In a large shallow copper pot

  • Pour the pure tomato juice through a sieve into a large copper pot which is properly set on the fireplace
  • Monitor the fire and add the necessary wood to keep the heat consistent
  • Once the juice starts boiling and thickening, start stirring the pot to make sure the paste doesn't stick to the pot and get burned
  • Throw in a handful of sea salt
  • Once a while, clean the sides of the pot with a flexible spatula
  • After the mixture starts to thicken, taste to adjust the salt
  • Once the mixture thickens and resembles a paste, remove it from the heat

In clean dry jars
