  • Tomato sauce - tomatoes, then juice vs tomatoes & juice Sven

    Recently I made a simple tomato sauce using canned tomatoes. In the recipe it said to first put the tomatoes in the pan, then the juice. I followed this advice and the sauce was great, but will the sauce turn out great again even if I put tomatoes & juice in the pan at the same time? Does it make a difference putting the juice into the pan after the tomatoes?

    If you need more information, this is the recipe I used.

  • It doesn't look like it'd make much difference to that recipe. The juice goes in right after the tomatoes, so it's not like they cook on their own significantly. The one thing you get out of adding the tomatoes first is a way to get them spread evenly around the pan without having to stir, so they're mostly on top of the onions and get gentler heat at first. But you'll be stirring soon anyway, so just dumping it all in wouldn't make much difference at all.

  • I was looking for a recipe for an Italian tomato sauce when I came across an old cookbook from an American Creole Chef I like, but I'm really confused about the terminology he uses for some of the ingredients and wondered if someone could clarify exactly what he's referring to. In the recipe he asks for - 2 cans (6 ounces) of tomato paste 2 cans (10 3/4 ounces) of tomato sauce 2 cans (10 3/4 ounces) of tomato puree I've always assumed that tomato paste and tomato puree were the same thing, but clearly not. Can anyone clarify the difference between these two? Tomato sauce in the UK

  • I'm trying to find cold alternatives to hot soup. A friend pointed me to gazpacho. I tried that, and we really liked it. However, I will be cooking for someone who does not eat cooked tomatoes (ketchup, tomato sauce, and tomato juice), and the recipe I have for the gazpacho is based on tomato juice. What can I use as a replacement for the tomato juice? I was thinking carrot juice maybe mixed with some lemon juice or vinegar (for the acidity that tomato juice has), but wanted a more "professional" opinion before doing so. What can I use to replace the tomato juice in gazpacho?

  • I was reading up on tomato sauce, and it seems important to simmer the sauce for at least a few hours. The “Frankies Spuntino” recipe is about as simple as it can get, it doesn't even contain onions. It's said to produce a “thick and rich sauce, with the flavor of the sweetest summer tomatoes.” The key points to the recipe seem to be to use canned San Marzano tomatoes and to keep the sauce at a simmer for four hours. It's clear that the quality of the tomatoes plays a role in the sweetness of the sauce, but why the long simmer? What exactly happens to the sauce during this? This snippet

  • A recipe for meat loaf from an Australian book (apparently terminology differs from country to country) calls for 1 cup (250 mL/8 fl oz) of tomato purée, and 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce. Wikipedia's article on tomato purée claims that the main difference between purée and paste is the thickness, whereas tomato sauce has a different taste. Can I substitute tomato paste for the tomato purée? If not, is it because the taste, or the amount of water, differs? If so, how much "triple concentrated" tomato paste should be substituted for a cup of tomato purée? Edit: the tomato paste ingredients
