    1. Wash tomatoes and cut into thick slices. Place in a large saucepan and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated and the skins can be peeled off easily.
    2. Transfer cooked tomatoes into a large sieve and press through to remove the tomato seeds and skins. Best to do these in batches if you are working with a smaller sieve.
    3. Season with salt and pepper; mix well and transfer into sterilised jars. Close lid tightly and for pasteurise 7 to 10 minutes.
