I just added four cans of whole San marzano tomatoes to the pot then just let it hang and reduce for a few hours. Set the heat to pretty low the sauce doesn't scortch and stir ever so often.
>>
>>9520282
Hey man, I add the onions and reduce them for the sweetness that comes forward when sweated and then basically stewed in the sauce as it reduces
>>
>>9520240
Hey OP, do you not add any spices to this?
>>
hope he adds semen
>>
>>9520291
maybe I'm using the wrong onions they always turned out really sulfurous. for sweetness I always just added basil.

mama mia, into the trash.

Twist: He finishes the sauce with maple syrup and bacon.
>>
>>9520438
what's wrong with onions and garlic in a sauce?
>>
>>9520330 nah man I don't season with anything till I'm just about done with it since the liquid in the pot is going to reduce by about half.


>>9520344 I use regular Spanish yellow onions, pretty basic. I add basil about five minutes before it's done so that way it can cook some but won't over cook and turn bitter.
>>
I just tried to make arrabiati sauce. Tastes far too sweet wtf. Why does everything I cook taste bad?!

So I've added about a bunch of basil and about half a bunch of oregano and a half cup of butter. All that's left to do is blend it and season with salt.
>>
>>9520658
>i don't season the sauce until it's almost done
this is a real person
>>
>>9520750
add some cocoa, just a bit. it'll 1. taste better and 2. take some of the sweetness away, as pure(proper) cocoa powder is bitter.
>>
Jesus christ this thread and sauce is shit.

Here you go from my Sicilian mother:

Fry some garlic in a pot with olive oil, add one can crushed tomato and one can tomato puree (you can add some tomato paste if you want for a little body).

Add whatever fucking spices you want, oregano, thyme, couple bayleafs whatever the fuck you want. This would be the time to add some kinda meat if you want too.

Bring to one boil and then simmer with lid for at least an hour. Take lid off if you want thicker sauce.

tldr: don't add fucking onions to your gay ass sauce.
>>
>>9520949
Sounds gross.
>>
>>9520265
Too much onion. Next time use maybe 1/3 of that.
>>
>>9520949
No carrots? No celery? No paste? No olive oil?

This isn't tomato sauce. This is ass sauce. Also you fucked up the herbs.
>>
Look, here's how to make a basic marinara. These other faggots, like you are fucked in the head. Saute @ 1/4 cup onions in EVOO until translucent. Add a couple finely chopped cloves of garlic, some dry pepper flakes and a bundle of thyme sprigs. After 1 minute add 1 qt of San Marzano or home canned whole tomatoes with juices that you crush by hand. Simmer 45 minutes to 1 hour. Salt to taste, add fresh basil for the last minute. That's it. Simple as shit. Oh, and oregano only belongs on pizza, so fuck off oregano fags.

>using EVOO in cooking
nigga thats for dressing at the end, cook in regular olive oil


Add about half a teaspoon of fish sauce when you add the tomato sauce, OP. If you don't have mushrooms in your final dish, it adds the extra bump of flavor you'll want.
>>
>>9521160
I added some actually right at the end just a little bit, it was huge on the umami
>>
>>9521148
Never ever ever use EVOO to cook. Your basically just throwing money away since all is flavor dies when you cook with it. It should only be used for finishing a dish or in a dressing.
>>
>>9521320
EVOO smells so bad

1.Adding meat that late?
2.This is just a "fuck my shit up" grandma sauce.
Ok guess that's why they call Italians the niggers of the Mediterranean
>>
>>9521320
For real, use butter it's fucking waaay better.
>>
>>9520949
Looks good OP. Fuck the haters.
>>
>>9520265
Too much onion already OP, and adding the garlic this early was a mistake. Your garlic will be burnt by the time those onions are sweet enough, and burnt garlic is bad.
>>
>>9521320

This is true. Olive oil and EVOO are 2 different things. The former has a higher smoke point. EVOO will scorch and burn pretty easily. Highly recommend avocado or grape seed oil.
>>
>>9521320
Plus extra virgin oil tastes horrible in sauces.
>>
do you guys add a ladle of pasta water to red sauces?
>>
I completely forgot that butter was a thing. Being a vegan ruined me
>>
>>9520287
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT LEAF AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POT
>>
>>9521986
IT'S A BAY LEAF FOOL!

real italian tomato sauce needs a bit of fish sauce added at the end for umami
>>
>>9521079
>doesn't add milk to cut the acidity of the tomatoes, increasing pH

Tell your mother she's shit.

t. Actual Sicilian.

Why would anyone want to be known as Sicilian? I know a guy with Sicilian parents, and he's arrogant, obnoxious, and his father is a wifebeater.

Don't be so hard on him, it must be hard having clothing items as parents.

Why? It would look pretty much the same. But it would taste better.
>>
>>9520438
"no color"
the caramelization will not exist to make the garlic bitter.
>>
>>9523055
i answered someone else and read on... i'm surprised also! it's not even funny.
>>
>>9520287
some of these fuckers probably add sugar to their sauce.
>>
>>9520641
It's something he heard one that he mindlessly repeats
>>
>>9520789
You get better flavor out of oregano if you add it when there's only oil in the pan (around same time as garlic). Same reason you do it with red chili flakes: You can extract more oil-soluble flavors that way than letting it stew around in tomato water
>>
>>9524666
This (if you're using dry).

Fresh herbs are a different story though. You lose far more volatile compounds by cooking longer than you gain from dissolving in oil.

Dry herbs go in earlier
Fresh herbs go in last few minutes
