Making ground tomatoes


Can I make ground tomatoes from whole peeled or crushed tomatoes by putting them through a food mill?

If you run your tomatoes through a food mill, you'll end up with more of a sauce-like consistency. The food mill will do a good job of separating peels, some seeds, cores and other fibrous parts of the tomato. I use my food mill for Neapolitan style sauces. These end up being very thin and smooth compared to New York style and Chicago style sauces.

I would recommend using an immersion blender. They're fairly inexpensive and will give you a lot of control over the consistency you're striving for.
