Step 1: Roughly cut the tomatoes into large dice.

Step 2: Place the tomatoes, salt, Verjuice and caster sugar into a food processor and blend until smooth. Add sugar if tomatoes are not ripe enough.

Step 3: Line a large sieve with muslin cloth or a clean muslin cloth and place it over a 1 litre bowl of jug. Pour the tomato mixture into the sieve, bring the ends up and tie them with some cooking twine.
