If redox isusing novembers red sauce #2 (or whatever its called), the herbs and spices are moistened and nuked for 2 min at 30%.  so redox likely means Microwave Assisted Extraction.  :chef:
Good eye....and memory CDNpielover, thank you.!  :-[

Terry,

FYI, I have been collecting acronyms and abbreviations at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,20056.msg196875.html#msg196875.

redox, I use a real basic diluted puree with only several different spices.
I can tell by looking at the recipe, Garvey's sauce would serve you well. There are a couple items on there you could probably omit if you don't have them and I'm sure it will still be great(the paparica and marjoram). Hope Garvey doesn't get mad at me tinkering with his recipe, I'm just trying to make this easier for you to try. Also, you could use a little extra oregano if you don't have the "Italian Seasoning blend"

Obviously, everyone is free to make whatever sauce they wish, but I will say this:
1. If you don't already have paprika in your kitchen, there's something wrong with you (sez the Eastern European in me).     ;D
2. If you're not familiar with marjoram, then you owe it to yourself to get to know it.  It has a floral quality that its cousin oregano does not.
3. But if you don't have these things or just wanna go your own way, that's cool.  Just look at the sheer amount of spices in the recipe--the herbal bomb--to get a good idea of how this style should generally go (IMO).   :)

Cheers,
Garvey

I think pretty much any kitchen would have the spices listed in Garvey's sauce recipe.  and IIRC, November's red sauce #2 has far more ingredients - like 10 or 12, doesn't it?

To all:
Sorry I didn't get back sooner, the sauce I referred to is here: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,3735.msg32136.html#msg32136
You have to make sure you don't get the mixture of spices too hot so if you don't know you microwave's wattage or it is a bit older and the magnetron has aged and is less powerful you need to calculate your nuker's power. A google search will reveal how to do it.
I used 6 in 1 tomatoes. It was very good but a pain to do. I'll try Garvey's sauce next and hope I like that one just fine as it is easier to make.

Btw, I just got back from Costco and they had Premio sausage but in 6 Lb packages, more than I can reasonably use or freeze. I'll look at Walmart the next time I swing by that way.
