Master chef tips: Make PERFECT tomato sauce like a Pro
By GB Blog Official 2016-10-22 523 1
We love tomatoes for their rich flavor, high liquid content, very soft flesh, and for having the right composition to thicken into a sauce when they are cooked.
All of these qualities make them ideal for simple and appealing sauces. In fact, the simplest tomato sauces consist of just chopped tomato flesh cooked in a little olive oil and simmered until it loses its raw flavor, and seasoned with salt.
Of course, you can add more ingredients according to your own taste.
Everything is possible
Hamburger, minced meatballs, pasta… lots of delicious food is served with traditional home-made tomato sauce. Such an easy food matching ingredient, you don't want to miss it!
Choose fresh tomatoes
Any tomato that tastes good to you can be used to make tomato sauce, it's really that simple. Select tomatoes that are deeply colored and firm.
Sniff it if you can. If they're missing that sweet, woody smell, leave them behind.
Time to make some sauce!
Bring a pot of water to a boil and ready a large bowl of iced water. Plunge the tomatoes whole into the boiling water until the skin starts to peel, then scoop them up with a slotted spoon into ice water.
Chop the remaining two and set them aside.
Cook onion, bell pepper, carrot and garlic in oil and butter in a large pot or Dutch oven. This should be done over medium heat until the onion starts to soften; this takes about 5 minutes.
Pour in the pureed tomatoes. Stir in chopped tomato, basil, Italian seasoning, and wine.
Place bay leaf and whole celery stalk in a pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 2 hours.
Stir the tomato paste and simmer an additional 2 hours and discard the bay leaf and celery.
Congratulations, your tomato sauce is ready!
