Tomato Puree is a cooking essential you might be missing. Simpler and a bit thicker than its flavorful cousin, tomato sauce, tomato purée is a fast way to quickly prepare and freeze a bushel of fresh tomatoes for future cooking. Tomato purée can be turned into tomato sauce or tomato soup. It can be used to cook different meals, all you need is a knife, a blender, and a little bit of time to stock your freezer with tomato purée to use year-round. 
It is quick and easy to make at home, it can make easier your life and save your time too, Tomato puree is one of the most important ingredients in everyday cookingIt is one of the very basic cooking ingredients, and making it at home from farm fresh tomatoes 

My Latest video Tomato Puree

It is as easy as counting 1,2,3… Don’t believe us? keep reading…In essence, it’s just a 3 step process – Blanch, Peel, and Crush. Blanching is the process of first partially cooking vegetables like tomatoes, onion, spinach, flower, etc. in hot boiling water for a few minutes and then immediately transferring them to cold water. 

This hot to cold water transfer process makes skin peeling easier and it preserves the color, taste, and nutrition of vegetables. This homemade tomato puree recipe also has step-by-step photos to make the tomato blanching process easy to understand and follow.


You can use fresh tomato purée right away, or you can freeze it for long-term storage. Feel free to use your favorite freezer-friendly storage method, but I prefer zip-top freezer bags, as they freeze flat (taking up less space) and thaw quickly. Freeze the purée in eight- or 15-ounce increments — that’s the amount required for most recipes. Label the bags and store them in the freezer for up to six months.

            Bash the nutmeg in a plastic bag with a rolling pin to break it into several smaller pieces 


            Remove the seeds from the Cardamom pods - again, a gentle bash with a rolling pin will suffice, or use a pestle and mortar.it is optional if needed, But I prefer not to need to remove the pods' skin 


            Place all the spices in a dry frying pan or skillet and heat over very low heat, stirring constantly.


            As soon as the aroma from the spices is released, remove the pan from the heat. (This step is essential to release the aromatic oils from the spices)


            Working with only a small quantity at a time, but the spices in an electric blender or grinder   


            And grind them to a fine powder.


            Take it out from the grinder jar and transfer it to the bowl/plate, Garam masala is ready to use in the recipe 


            It can be stored in a bottle and paste the label with the spice name       

            Pizza Seasoning Recipe


            Pizza Seasoning | Italian Seasoning || How to make Pizza Seasoning with step-by-step photos...

            Pizza Seasoning is traditional Italian herbs combined with onion flakes, garlic powder, thyme, oregano, crushed black pepper, rosemary, and basil
            That is used in all types of pizzas and this spice mix to take your pizza to the next level_ Here I used mixed herbs which already added thyme, oregano, basil, and rosemary. alongside I just added oregano since that is an essential herb of this seasoning but you can add separately herbs as per your choice.      
            Personally, I love homemade making pizza, it is an inexpensive alternative to visiting our local pizza parlor_But couldn’t share it with all for some reason, But I couldn’t help but feel something was missing…I was using a good sauce, and fresh cheese, but for some reason, my pizzas seemed somewhat boring, and maybe even a little uninspired. Until I found this recipe for Homemade Pizza seasoning.

            1. Homemade pizza seasoning is simply a blend of traditional Italian spices which complement pizza remarkably well
            2. The more I used this homemade seasoning blend, the more I appreciated the mix of flavors. I will now use this in place of Italian seasoning in many upcoming recipes, and I even use it in bread dough. The uses for this mix are endless.
            3. Homemade Pizza Seasoning stores very well in an airtight container, go ahead and mix some up in advance you will be surprised how much you reach for it while cooking and baking! I like to use a shaker lid on a mason jar, so I can flip the top open and quickly measure out exactly what I need.
            4. For the best result follow my detailed step-by-step photo instructions and tips


            I started using homemade pizza seasoning to sprinkle on my homemade pizza crusts prior to baking, but quickly expanded my usage of it. I now incorporate it into my homemade sauce or even add a little into the dough ingredients in my bread maker to bake the flavor right into the dough.
