    How to measure tomatoes
    Different varieties of tomatoes are interchangeable in most recipes.
    Tomato Equivalents
    • 3 medium globe tomatoes = 1 pound
    • 8 small plum tomatoes = 1 pound
    • 25 to 30 cherry tomatoes = 1 pound
    • 2 cups chopped tomatoes = 1 pound
    • 3/8 cup of tomato paste plus 1/2 cup water = 1 cup tomato sauce
    • 1 cup canned tomatoes = 1-1/2 cups fresh, chopped, cooked tomatoes
    • 1/2 pound or 1 tomato = 1 serving
    • 1 cup firmly packed fresh tomato = 1/2 cup tomato sauce plus 1/2 cup water
    • 1 pound fresh = 1-1/2 cups chopped
    • 1 (16-ounce) can = 2 cups
    • 1 (35-ounce) can = 4 cups undrained
    • 1 (28-ounce) can = 3 cups undrained
