i cook canned tomatoes according to recipe of mario batali.

in the recipe, mario uses 2 cans of tomatoes, each of which has 800 grams of raw tomatoes plus its juices.

but i normally buy much larger one, that weights 2.92 kilo grams IN TOTAL.

it consists of 85 % raw tomatoes plus 14% of its thin juices.

mario instruct to cook the canned tomatoes of1600 grams(1,6 kilo grams ) like this.

first bring the tomatoes in pot up to boiling point and then simmer gently about 30 minuits.

does this instruction still apply to much larger quanty of tomatoes like mine(2.92 kilo grams
