Great product, here is my 1-2-3 Method. The method is the same for all of my canned La Valle San Marzanos. Others may disagree with me on this but I like to warm the sauce first because it tastes totally different warm than out of the can cold. Step #1, Put contents into a oven safe pot or pan. Why I say a oven pot or pan is for the reason that on my range top even at the lowest possible setting it is too hot and it will eventually begin to boil and reduce the sauce. You do not want to lose any of the great flavor. In the oven at the lowest possible setting it will warm nice and slow and even. You can walk away for hours and not worry about it. Step #2, as the contents begins warm use a potato masher gently to crush the contents without disturbing the seeds. Treat this sauce like a baby. Don't stir it like a caveman. Repeat this process until you have the consistency you are looking for. This is much better to do warm than cold out of the can. I do not season mine, it is up to you to experiment, watch out for lightning from the sky. Step #3 is to enjoy. Not only is this the Snizzle Rizzle Drizzle over pie, it's great stock out of the can over pasta and breads etc. It's a good idea to keep some around the house at all times.
