Do You Add paste to thicken Sauce?
« on: January 12, 2016, 12:24:13 PM »
My go to crushed tomatoes are sclafani's, as is, they are the thickest crushed tomatoes I've run into.

However, I wish I could make them just a little denser, because I've found people in my area prefer a hearty  sauce.

If I where to add paste, how much would the flavor balance and profile change?

Or you could put them in a fine sieve and strain a bit of water out of the crushed.

I'll try that out. Because, I REALLY DON'T want to add paste at all.
Thank you for the tip!

Yeh, no to the paste. I've tried numerous types and not 1 of them added value to the flavor of the sauce. I also like thick sauce. Craig has the answer.
