Tomato Conversions & Equivalents

Tomato Conversions & Equivalents

I seem to have a lot of trouble remembering how to convert some ingredients. How many cups of dry beans convert to how many ounces of cooked beans is always hard for me to remember. The same is true with tomatoes.

I needed to know how many ounces of fresh tomatoes are there in a 32 ounce of canned tomatoes. The reason you need to know these conversions is because some recipes give you the tomatoes fresh, some canned, some as tomato paste.

You may not be able to get your hands on some fresh tomatoes out of season so you resort to canned. Doesn’t matter, here are tomato conversions that may be useful to you when cooking.

Of course all this varies depending on the type of tomato you are referring to, but this will give you a good ballpark figure.

Tomato Conversions

1 small tomato = 3 – 4 ounces
1 medium tomato = 5 – 6 ounces
1 large tomato = 7 ounces
1 cherry tomato = 1/2 – 2 ounces
3 medium round tomatoes = 1 pound
8 plumb tomatoes = 1 pound
15 – 20 cherry tomatoes = 1 pound
25 to 30 cherry tomatoes yields 2 cups chopped
1 pound fresh tomatoes yields 1-1/2 cups chopped
1 pound fresh tomatoes yields 3 cups pureed
2-1/2 pounds fresh tomatoes yields 3 cups chopped, drained
2-1/2 pounds fresh tomatoes yields 2-1/2 cups seeded, chopped cooked
2 cups chopped tomatoes = 1 pound
1 (14-1/2 ounce) can tomatoes = 5 to 6 whole or about 1 pound
1 (16 ounce) can tomatoes = 2 cups
1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes = 3 cups
1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes = 10 to 12 whole or about 2 pounds
1 (35 ounce) can tomatoes = 4 cups
