It's easy.  I make it and freeze it in empty margarine tubs:

Wash the tomatoes  - the more the better - and cut them into chunks (halves, quaters etc.)

Put them in a big pan - I use a preserving pan

I add a splash of water just to start them off and heat gently for quite a while until they are very soft and mushy. 

I then press them through a nylon sieve and pour the passata into the tubs - cool - freeze.

Not stupid at all  ::)

It's great for adding to all sorts of things. 

You can reduce it to make it thicker before you freeze it if you want to too.
