  1. I have a question do you really need to put in sugar, I’m a diabetic and I’m trying to take the sugar out of as many recipes as I can, any help would be appreciated.

    Sugar enhance flavor just as salt.
    You can use the same kind of artificial sweetener you use when baking, for this as well.
    -but no, you don’t necessarily need to add the sugar.

    Does it matter what variety of tomatoes you use? Also how much does it make and how big of a jar of tomato paste? Thanks ?

  4. Sugar is used to balance the flavour and regulate the acidity of the tomatoes, so any form of sweetner in its place is fine.
    Any variety of tomatoes can be used, i used a variety as that was what my garden was producing.
    Depending on your jar sizes, it can make 6-8 jars.
    The tomato paste jar is 500 grams.
    Im not sure how many kilos of tomatoes in this recipe but i estimate 3. I just filled my 6 litre slow cooker until it could fit no more.
