Heston's Pizza Sauce
« on: January 17, 2009, 02:02:31 PM »
Not the way I do it, but something I'll try in the summer with tomatoes from the garden just to see how it works in a wood-fired oven

Bill,

I've seen this before and am glad to have the reminder that I wanted to try his idea with the tomato vines.  This idea is intriguing to me and I am now eager for summer so that I can try his technique to see if it truly adds to the flavor.  I know that he is right about the odor of the vines because I personally love that fragrance and it never fails to make me hungry!

Thanks for posting the links.

I've watched these vids a couple of times, but perhaps I'm nodding off.  What exactly does he do with the vines?

I have used the toms like I see in the vid and it is a nice enough sauce.  I wonder if the vine doesn't go into the pressure cooker.

csacks,

Nope, you weren't nodding off....there's apparently another version of this vid out there on youtube somewhere because the original one I watched has him saying that after his sauce is done, he puts the bowl of it into a plastic bag, puts the vines into the bag next to the bowl, seals it up and sticks it in the fridge... I believe it was overnight... which gives the sauce time to absorb the "odor" of the vines.  Seems like an interesting concept to try whcih might give the sauce more tomato flavor.  If I am mis-remembering this, I hope someone will jump in with the corrections, but I'm pretty sure that's what he did. 

I'm going to try this concept this summer when my tomatoes ripen.  I'll report back my findings... and if anyone else has tried this, I would love to hear the outcome!
