I would suggest: taste as-is at room temp, then season to taste if you think it needs it. I would not rule out cooking but I would think of this as a ‘get to know you’ can.


There is a lot of information and opinions in the sauce section of the forum. Enjoy the process!

EDIT: once you taste from the can, it would be a good idea to try changes to a small portion of the tomatoes, like one cup full in a cereal bowl and keep some notes. That way, if your first guess does not lead in the direction you want you still have most of the can to experiment with.

When I was using them, I only added salt to the tomatoes for pizza. Sauce consistency-wise I would sometimes change things like running some or all through a food mill for a thinner pizza sauce. They're good tomatoes. I used them for a long time. Currently going through an Alta Cucina phase.

My preference is to not cook.  If you want a thicker sauce, strain some of the juice using a colander. 

I'd also recommend transferring the tomatoes into a glass bowl (refrigerated) for a couple of days to remove any residual flavor from the can.  Not required, but the flavor improves in my experience.

Just opened my first can of Tomato Magic last week, very good, liked the consistency. I don’t cook any of my sauces but definitely like 24hrs in the fridge after adding spices.

I don’t think there’s a right or wrong answer wether sauce should be cooked or not, it’s a preference really, I used to cook all my sauce for 30-45min, I’ve since decided its just not necessary, but not wrong to do so if you choose.
