Deceptively simple...I expected kind of a one-note sauce because it looked so simple, but I was wrong. It's quite rich with just the right balance of flavors. My son helped me- he really enjoyed squeezing canned tomatoes. I can't wait to make this again. I'll home-can about five quarts of this stuff!
Tastes excellent. I think the amount of salt required varies depending on which canned tomatoes you use, and the acid content of those tomatoes in particular. I have found myself having to use different amounts of salt to get the taste right. I add half the recommended salt, then I taste at the end and add more if it's too acidic (the salt neutralizes the tomato acids). Love the sauce, tastes exactly like the marinara sauce they sell in jars at the store.
"it tastes awesome! "This is my nine-year old's review - enough said.
Also re: the quantity of salt, it does specify kosher salt, which means that if you use table salt or sea salt, you should cut the amount in half. Kosher salt does not taste as salty.
