Cut the tomatoes in half.
Using a box grater inside a bowl, place the cut side of the tomato on the grater. In a circular motion, grate the tomato down to the skin. Repeat until all the tomatoes are grated.
Pour the grated tomatoes into a small holed strainer and allow the water from the tomatoes drain to concentrate the pulp. About 1 hour.
