Have you posted your pizza sauce recipe? I haven't found one I like.

I don't think so.

It's just onion, garlic, paste, tomato, oregano, basil, salt, pepper and wine. I usually make up a 28 Oz can's worth and freeze it in pizza-sized portions.

They are both acids, citric acid vs acetic acid.

I'm not sure, just trying to save you some room on the shelf for the next twenty years!

I'm not sure if vinegar would work. The websites said citric acid. I'm just thrilled to pieces that something worked! Oxyclean has always been my go-to, but I had no idea it would react with sunscreen and iron well water like it did.

The key might be well-aged citric acid!

Proportions! I need proportions!

1, 3, 6, 28, 1, 1, to taste, to taste and 1/2.

OK.

EVOO
1 small onion
3 garlic
6 oz can tomato paste
28 oz can tomato
Tb oregano,
Tb basil
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup wine (I use vermouth)

Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil. Add the paste and sauté until the paste darkens and starts to caramelize. Add the rest of the ingredients.
At this point I use a stick blender to puree it all as I like smooth pizza sauce. BTB, RTS and simmer for 30 minutes.

If the sauce is too acidic for your taste, add a half tsp of baking soda, stir it in and simmer for a couple of minutes.

The Belmont! A whole one minute and 30 seconds, but I just have to watch.

American Pharoah just won the Triple Crown! First TC in 37 years!

That sounds good, Andy.

Congrats to American Pharoah! I didn't see the race, but it's all over the internet. What an accomplishment after so many years!

Well, we were finally able to set a date for the first trip for family and friends to come up and all get together - next Saturday. There's a few celebrations - my youngest daughter will be turning 30th that weekend, she and my SIL just bought their first house and just moved in a couple of weeks ago, and one of the grands had a birthday recently, too.

I've been working on a menu today - so far, I think it will be sliced roast beef and ham, an assortment of breads and cheeses, potato salad, deviled eggs, fruit bowls, a veggie tray with dips, and cake and ice cream.
More get togethers throughout the month, into July. More birthdays then. But I'll worry about that once we get through this one. :-)
