Love it!

LOVE this product! How wonderful to have this robust, flavor-filled food always in my pantry. I've used it for so many things: lasagna, ketchup, chili, soup, etc.. Anything that calls for tomato sauce or paste and this tomato powder is ready to perform like a star!

Previously, one of the things I could never store for long-term was tomato sauce and paste in cans. After a time the contents would take on a tinny taste and it would always come through in the finished dish.

Now? No problem! Tomato powder to the rescue!

So glad for this. Not something I ever want to be without.

Very Versatile!

Since everyone has already reviewed it for various tomato sauces and such, I thought I would throw a few more things we have done out there to give you some ideas about the versatility of the product. The flavor reminds me of pureed roma or amish paste tomatoes..very fresh very clean flavor. When constituted according to directions it has the consistency of smooth thinner tomato sauce.
When I use it in sauces, I reconstitute it with wine, chicken or beef broths, olive oil etc that I would add into the recipe and cook down instead of using water. I also mix olive oil, spices and tomato powder to make a quick paste to toss with vegetables or lose the oil and make a dry rub for meats. I use it to make fresh tomato pasta, it’s the tomato base for my chili. Tomato powder and Italian or Mexican spices and a little chicken or beef bouillon and some powdered milk for the cream varieties and you have a one skillet chicken or beef meal mix that taste like you bought it at the store. One night in a pinch we used it to make spicey bloody mary mix for unexpected guests...they loved it. Now I make spicey tomato juice to pressure canning meats and vegetables. I just keep finding more ways to use it..its good stuff! Like most folks, I dry can portions from a #10 can in a mason jar with a canister sealer.

Tomato Powder

I use lots of these things and when I open the can I vacuum seal it in pint jars. That way it stays fresh for years. I do this with all the dehydrated foods

The best product I've EVER used - I'm Italian and use tons of tomatoes all the time. What a great substitute!

Good taste...but...

When I opened the can of tomato powder it was a solid block. This makes me wonder if there was a manufacturing problem or a problem with the can. Physically the can was in perfect shape. No dents.

I scraped off some "powder" and tried cooking with it. It does have a good flavor that's similar to tomato paste. I'm going to throw the rest out due to the unknown quality and difficulty of use.

I loved the taste and would have rated it a full 5 stars if it had not been a brick. After all, it's called tomato “powder”, not tomato brick.

{Response from Emergency Essentials - This is very unusual to have product hardening from the beginning. We usually hear of this when cans have been exposed to open air for a time - particularly in humid climates. Another culprit is accidental heat exposure in storage at home. The product definitely works better as a powder than a brick :) so give us a call and we'll help you troubleshoot the concern}

Fantastic!!!

I am having so much fun using this powder. I have made my own sauce, added it to other things and made tomato soup. I love it. The # 10 can goes a long long way.

Every Cook Must Have ...

I was hesitant to try tomato powder, thinking it would just taste like cardboard without much flavor. Boy was I ever surprised. It is very flavorful and fresh tasting. I no longer buy tomato sauce or tomato paste in the small cans at the grocery store. This product has replaced all that. I use it for everything, sauces, pastes, juices, soups, including pizza sauce. I also like it because it is JUST TOMATO. I like experimenting with spices and seasonings to make just the right dish. I have found it to last around a year in my pantry [after being opened] (if I don't use it up by then) but I have also started keeping it in the fridge to prevent hardening. I will buy this product forever and I use it on a daily basis.

gotta love it

I had never tried tomato powder before I got a can last year. Add water to make tomato sauce or paste, and it works as well, or better, than the canned stuff. You can add salt, sugar, or other seasonings if you want, but I don't think it needs it. If you live in a humid area, the powder tends to pack down and get a little hard, but all you have to do is take either a dinner fork or a cooking fork, scratch at it a little, and restore the powder consistency. (Hey, I like to make things easy on myself!)

This is Wonderful

I really like this product. Had some trouble figuring out how to mix it at first. Now I use this guide. Tomato Paste: 1part tomato powder to 2 parts water
(6T. water + 3T. Powder = one 6oz can of Tomato Paste)

Tomato Sauce: 1part Powder to 4 parts water
(1/2 cup Powder + 2cups water= one 15oz can)

Tomato Juice: 1 part Powder to 10 parts Water
(8cups Water + 3/4 cup Powder= 64oz. bottle)

* Tomato Powder has no added salt. If you want these products to taste like the grocery store kinds you will need to add a small aount of salt (1/8 tsp per 1/2 cup of Tomato Powder)

I add more seasonings and make my own Vegetable cocktail juice from it. Thanks for offering this product.

Love It!

I had a can of tomato powder for years without ever trying it. My daughter told me one day how much she liked it, so I opened a can and started using it in my daily meals. We all love tomatoes, and this product is wonderful. As others have said, it is good to use any way you would use tomatoes. It rehydrates instantly, and has a great tomato flavor. Good to thicken soups, stews and sauces. I'm still learning new ways to use it, and converting over from canned tomatoes. It stores so well, and keeps a long time. I can't think of any food storage product that is so versatile. There should be a recipe book just for this product.

good stuff!

This is really great stuff. I add it to spaghetti sauce, tomato gravy, canned tomatoes--everything I use tomatoes for. It gives everything a much better taste than just plain tomatoes. YUMM!

Better than wet pack

The more I use this powder, the less I care about typical canned tomato products. It has a wonderful ripe sweet flavor and is so versatile. I appreciate the long shelf life as well. Mix with 2 parts water, some olive oil, herbs and sugar for the best instant pizza sauce ever.

Awesome Product!

As a huge lover of all tomato products, I was skeptical of what a powdered tomato could do. This exceeded ALL expectations! I use it to thicken a homemade stew, soup, or spaghetti sauce. If I'm desperate for salsa and there are no decent tomatoes to be had, I thicken the salsa and add flavor with the powdered stuff. I have even made tomato juice - I had to spike it with added salt and lemon juice, but it was very good. I've make barbecue sauce. I've made a "sundried tomato" style of salad dressing. I've used it with taco seasoning to give a richer flavor to my taco meat. This is good stuff, Maynard! My kitchen will never be without it.

A great product

I keep a very large supply of this on hand at all times. Only problem is, once the can is open this can get very hard before you can use it. I put it in small canning jars and vacuum seal them with my vacuum sealer. Just a note. I find that the large mouth jars seam much better then the small mouth jars.

You Must Try This!

Thought I'd try this out to see if it was worth using up any space in my food storage. I've made lasagna, spaghetti, marina sauce for bread sticks, tomato soup - - You name it I've tried it. The best part is that I used it without telling my husband and children and they truly didn't notice any difference from the fresh or canned tomato sauce or paste! It doesn't take much to do the trick, either. I know it will be a must-have for my food storage from now on - especially since it has a MUCH longer shelf life.

Tomato powder!

This powder is the BEST! Mix it with a little water, you have great tomato paste...want sauce, simply add more water and spices. It is soooo handy! I highly recommend it! And a little goes such a long ways!
