    I don’t buy paste anymore. I have a dehydrator, and when I dehydrate 15 pounds of tomatoes I toss them into my Nutribullet and make one full pint of pure tomato powder. A tablespoon of the powder plus a tablespoon of water equals 1 tablespoon of tomato paste. No lost paste in the freezer! It tastes better, too, I think. It hasn’t been cooked, so it hasn’t lost any nutrients. I buy 15 pounds of slightly blemished tomatoes just for this purpose from a farm stand for $5, and they are field ripened all year ’round here in Florida, so they are deep red, juicy and delicious. I could also place slices in olive oil to enjoy that way. Next I’m going to try sugar free, no HFCS ketchup from my powder.
