Boil tomatoes

Place the tomatoes in a large pot, bring to a boil. As the temperature in the pot increases, tomatoes will release their own liquid and juices in which to cook. Reduce the heat to a simmer with gentle bubbles popping. Cook, stirring often for 10-15 minutes until the tomatoes soften and break apart.
