You will need:
- 5 medium very ripe tomatoes, halved
- freshly ground black pepper
- lemon, juiced
Place the halved tomatoes, skin side down in a large nonstick skillet.
Drizzle with a tablespoon of water.
Cover and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes.
Check occasionally to make sure that there is liquid in the pan …add a little water at a time.
Pour the tomatoes and juice into a sieve placed over a large bowl.
Mash the tomatoes with a wooden spoon to get all the pulp through the sieve without seeds and skin.
Add salt and pepper to taste and a little lemon juice.
Chill and serve over ice.
