6-in-1...what to do with the drained liquid?
« on: November 21, 2008, 12:01:05 PM »
Thanks to you guys here, I discovered 6-in-1 a few years ago and haven't gone back to anything else. Recently for deep dish/stuffed i have been draining the tomatoes, but ok, I'm a thrifty kinda guy and want to use the run-off....but for what?

How about soup? Or, a nice spicy caesar.

I echo the soup suggestion.  Sounds good on a day like today.  :chef:
Let them eat pizza.

#1 dont dump it ! Add a little red wine and boil it on low to reduce it. Now you have a nice sace you can do alot of things with A great option is  part of a nice past sauce.

Try using it as the 'water' when making bread. It's very good.

When straining, what sort of strainer is used and how long?

Thanks in advance.

The best way I have found is to use a gold coffee filter basket. Fill with crushed tomato and let sit in fridge for several hours, I just put it on top of a plastic quart sized deli container. I have found 6 in 1 to be much more watery than other brands such as Eden Organic, my preferred brand at the moment.

For Chicago Style deep dish pizzas, I strain it for about 45 minutes as indicated in the picture below.  I do not like to strain it any longer than that as it dries up the tomato flavor too much I think.  I used to strain it for hours, but I found that the result was very undesirable, at least IMO.  For thin crust pizzas, I use it straight out of the can without any draining.  In both cases, I mix and blend a number of spices and herbs with it.   I have not found Escolon's 6 in 1 to be any more watery than other brands.  My wife uses the drained liquid to add in a number of things (salad, soup) or we simply dispose of it.

I just ordered 6 cans from there web site and I'll be using them for NY style. I like smooth sauce so I'll be using a wand to mix them. Do any of you think I'll have to drain out some of the water first? Will the water separate after being mixed? I don't really use paste so it will likely just be the tomatoes and a wine slurry I'll add for flavor. thanks in advance  Billy

I made pizza last night, and tonight I'm going to use the drained liquid for pepper steak.
  I would also use it for beef barley soup, & spaghetti sauce. That sauce is soooo good
I would never throw it away.
