Best Fresh Tomato Sauce
So you want to make a batch of your own, home made tomato sauce, but where do you begin? Here is a great tutorial on How to Make the Best Tomato Sauce From Fresh Tomatoes, that will take you through step by step on how to get your best tomato sauce. The author, Daniel over at Serious Eats has spent a lot of time around Italians and in Little Italy in New York and also in Italy in Europe as well, so he doesn't really believe that there is one best tomato sauce in the world, because they are always turning out differently and they are all so unique in their flavours. I imagine, kind of like wine, there are the different kinds and you prefer some flavours over others, but there is not one perfect wine that trumps other wines altogether.
Daniel really takes his time, sharing with us the results that he has come up with after testing out making tomato sauce in different ways with different methods and different types of tomatoes. He outlines the best kind of tomatoes to use, and also the best for the season that you are making the sauce in. If it is not tomato season, then you are probably better off using canned tomatoes, as much as that doesn't sound the best. Hopefully they would be your own canned tomatoes from your own garden.
Then there is the method, which he outlines super clearly for us to follow step by step. He does such a great job of going through everything and helping the reader understand the reasoning behind each and every aspect of making the tomato sauce. Tomato sauce is something that is so nice to have handmade too, because you can use it for so many recipes! Try making your own!
