I want to use pasata because it comes in glass bottles. I can get tomato paste in little glass jars at the health food store, but it is quite expensive. Even organic tomatoes come in cans lined with stuff containing BPA, which is estrogenic and I'm not supposed to eat anything estrogenic.
My niece and nephew pick and can their own tomatoes...by the bushel. My Christmas gift from them every year is several jars of tomatoes, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes and even last year HP sauce! I will be using their paste for my ketchup!

BTW, what is pasata?

Since I'm online anyway, Pasata is a cross between tomato paste and tomato sauce. Often used in pasta dishes or even as a pizza base.
It's an Italian tomato sauce, very good and only the best tomatoes are used to make it. Yum!

Pasata is pureed tomatoes with no skin or seeds. Sort of like tomato paste if that hadn't been reduced.

I only found out about it in the past year. I think it is a fairly recent offering in Canadian stores.

I love raw vegetables, meat, fish, butter, whole spices and 'ghee' . I hate anything ready to cook and with lots of preservatives.

Hi Radhuni :)
I see you live in India, Do you perhaps have a good recipe for Green Chutney? I love it so much but the chef at our local Indian restaurant won't share his recipe

To me, A-1 is much like a thickened Worchestershire. My favorite for burgers is Heinz 57.

I should try it. I love worchestershire sauce on eggs but I don't like it when it makes my toast soggy and runs all over my plate
English breakfast always takes me forever to eat, I love it though! I add a few drops of w/sauce, tabasco, and HP sauce or marmelade to each bite. Not all at once, it drives my husband nuts

Of course, why not? Green chutneys may be various types. I am giving here a most common, I am not sure the taste may not match with chef.

Take a small bunch of coriander leaves and a small bunch of mint leaves. Wash them (you can keep the stems). Add a teaspoonful thick tamarind paste, a teaspoonful yogurt and three or four cloves of garlic, salt according to taste.

If you want sweet chutney, then add sugar according to taste otherwise add fresh green chilis.

Mix them in mixi with a two spoonful water.

You can keep it in refrigeration for two to three days.

Here is the hot green chutney I have prepared two days ago.
