6 in 1 Sauce Recipes
« on: January 19, 2009, 08:54:22 PM »
Alright, I finally got my 6 in 1's in 28oz cans.  Anyone have a good spice recipes?  I'm new to making my own sauce so I'm looking for "exact" recipes and measurements like - 28oz 6-1, 1 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp basil..... etc.  I got the smaller cans to experiment and I'm also waiting for some stanislaus Full Red to try out as well.

Pizzacrazy,

Don't go overboard with the spices. The tomatoes have such a great taste and you don't want to mask it with a ton of spices. I found that sometimes less is more, using only the basic spices such as oregano, basil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and a pinch of onion powder.

I also add maybe 1/4 cup of water and puree it a little with an immersion blender (boat motor), but still leave some chunks in there.

I usually go by tsp, but go a little heavier on the Oregano and Basil and hand-crush them both before they go in.

As Mentioned Before I'll second that Mike, less is better but the fennel idea I saw here somewhere recently sounded pretty good.  :D

Pizzacrazy7,

If you really like the sound of the recipes you found for the 28oz cans, you can also do the math to scale down the recipes to a 12 oz can... i.e.  12 oz is 43% of 28 oz, so you could add just under half of the amount listed for the 28oz can.  So, for instance, if the 28 oz can recipe called for 2 tsp of an herb, you would add 7/8th tsp to the 12 oz can... you could just eyeball a shy tsp, which would be even easier.

Just a thought...

p.s.  Forgot to add that I agree with Mike... less is more.  Whether scaling the recipe or trying a new one, I would err on the side of less... after all, you can always add more.  Be sure to let the sauce rest for a while either way to let the herbs infuse into the sauce.

I didn't know that 6 in 1 come in 12 oz. cans.  Where did you get them from?  --BTB

Edit:  Ok, I see the original posting was changed afterwards to 28 oz cans which is the best size in my estimation.  But all the replies mentioned 12 oz. can sizes, so I was wondering if I had misread the original posting, but did not.
