Best way still is the oldfashioned way, imo, with a big SS vegetable sieve.
Faster would be to use my (built-for-life) Magimix (Robot is a bit over the top for my taste).

Currently processing >200lbs of freebee tomatoE-s. In a couple of days, a similar quantity of cucumbers arrive, followed by a motherload of red bell peppers. (gawd, how fun it is to be a stinkin scrooge, i should be residing under a bridge)

Each tomato batch goes in a 5gal pot for the first boil down, in a smaller one for the second stage =>

I find the heirloom varieties yield more, maybe quince would be a good substitute. I use a chinois on my tomato puree (somehow apropriate) .

SY - I find the Chinese restaurant scene to rely a little too much on the sauce factory, I realize that's a fairly eccentric opinion. It would be interesting to see some top restaurants with signature sauces 100% made on premisis, I doubt the "Heinz" flavor and texture could be duplicated from supermarket only ingredients.

You would appriciate the fact that we had a seder last week and my sons wanted to put barbecue sauce on my daughters brisket. She quickly hit the pantry and whipped up a date and spice based sauce from Sephartic tradition.

Slanted Door is one of them, or so they claim.

Not exactly food but something to help wash it down. Not mine but a friend's.

"Farm run off" -- nice euphemism for animal excrement.

If you are going to use a pre-packaged "chili sauce", the Heinz stuff is the worst option. It's just sweet ketchup with a bit of flavour. Why not use some nice sriracha instead?

The phosphates from fertilizer used to be awful on the Great Lakes.

In the Southeast states folks purchase into a retirement village in the winter only to find out in the spring that they are 2 miles downwind from a hog farm.

Speaking of "bottled on premises" sauces -- "Peter Luger Sauce" is available in and around NYC -- from the steakhouse in Brooklyn.
