  1. hi,

    sorry for the obvious question, but when you say “grind”, do you mean to put it in a mixer (or a blender) ?


    • Yes. You can either use mixer or blender.

  2. What is the shelf life of this tomato puree.
    This is a nice site. Good work.

    • I usually prepare it freshly when I need it. You may store for two to three days.
