Cooking Tips #6


Ever have your tomato sauce taste “tinny” or have that metallic taste to it? Yeah, we so understand. This is what happens when you cook tomato-based sauces in aluminum or any reactive metal pan/pot. Sometimes, even copper will have this effect.

To fix that taste, however, add a dash or two of Balsamic vinegar. Other than that, don’t cook in reactive metal pots. 🙂

    For some reason, I did not know this about the metal pots. We use stainless steel around here, but man! I’d love to have my mother’s and grandmother’s cast-iron skillets, muffin pans, and dutch ovens to use!

    Plus, a good gas range to use them on. 🙂

    Thanks for the tip, Jinxie. Have a delicious day!

      Oh, I love cast iron cookware. Wish I had some. Also love cooking with a gas stove/oven. Everything just cooks better with natural gas.

      Thanks for stopping by!


Have something to say? Jot it down. I dare you. ;)
