In preparation for the raining day especially in dis era of recession here in Nigeria where there is a hike in the prices of foodstuffs. This is how I preserve my tomatoes when the price is very low and affordable. There are times when the price of a basket can go as high as 18000 to 20000 naira, while other times it could be selling for as low as 1000 to 3000. U can store your tomatoes like this.............
I bought my basket for 2000 4 weeks back. Storage is outside the refrigerator please, no light required and it can last for a year. You grind the tomatoes steam on d fire for hours (like mine, I used firewood and a big pot outside, no finish your gas ooo), when its thick after all d water has gone looking as thick as the normal tin or sachet tomatoes we buy, you can now pour in d glass jars (example, mayonnaise containers) close and put back on the empty pot add some water and allow to boil a little, remove and keep in a corner of the house. Thank God I have also learnt another way of storage using metal containers, indeed there is joy in sharing knowledge. Thanks guys for all your contributions.
