Have you ever made marinara from canned tomatoes? I'm not suggesting this long, but some homemade sauces are cooked for 8 hours on low. Look up Sunday Gravy lol.


:cheers:

That's a very good explanation.

Never sacrifice flavor for heat.

Don't be afraid to overcook it. But pay attention so it doesn't cook to the bottom of the pot or burn to the bottom.

How long did you cook it?

 

First time I cooked it for about 10 minutes I guess. Second time for another 20 minutes. I stir it once every few minutes so it doesn't burn to the bottom of the pan.

 

 

Until you get the consistency/texture you desire.

 

Okay good to know! Next sauce is going to be awesome!

 

 

Edit: Didn't see there was a second page already, whoops.

No I haven't done that. That's very interesting, so I don't have to be afraid to overcook it at all! Thank you all so much for the help.

Some of the yummiest foods are cooked for a long time-

chili

stew

ribs

pot roast

prime rib

apple/peach/meringue pie

brisket

cheese cake

smoked meats

spaghetti sauce

roasted chiles and vegetables

 

Don't be afraid of long cooking, but take care as those above have posted to make sure it doesn't burn.  You really can't 'overcook' hot sauce.  Overcooked chicken, yea..yuck..... and for some things there is definitely a difference in flavor.  Like garlic, fresh garlic and lightly cooked garlic has a waaaaay different flavor than long cooked or roasted garlic. 

 

Moisture will evaporate from the sauce, which can be replaced to keep the desired consistency.  As long as it doesn't burn~~~ it's all good!

Have Fun!
