Tomato powder is one of the THRIVE ingredients your pantry should not be without. Honestly, I purchased on sale and had no idea other than perhaps in soup how we might use it. Well, it has many uses. Never buying tomato paste again tops my list along with super easy boost of tomato flavor whenever you might need it in soups, stews, chili and more, without corn syrup.
Add water and make your own tomato paste, one tablespoon or two, no more orphan cans in the fridge. Being frugal, even at .50 each, I hated throwing those cans away, so in the icebox they would linger or worst long forgotten in the freezer until of no use and they were eventually tossed.
Combine all ingredients in bowl. Makes two jars with 1/4 cup or so extra that can be saved or tossed immediately with cooked pasta. Glass batter bowl or bowl with spout makes for easy pouring into jars. Canning funnel helpful as well if you have one. Final product –delicious and also BPA free.
