Strain through a sieve, or mouli to remove all seeds and skin.
Wash the pan, and return the mixture to the pan. (It will be quite runny.)
Heat the pan and simmer the mixture gently until it has reduced and is the consistency of sauce.
When cool, pour into containers.
Cover, label and store in the deep freeze.
