How much sugar should I add to tomato sauce to make it less acid?


Answer by  tessamalk (466)

You only need a little bit of sugar, really; probably two teaspoons per jar of sauce. You can also try adding cinnamon to the mix--it does a fantastic job of cutting the acid and adds some great, subtle flavor!

Sugar does not lessen the acidity of the tomatoes. It only masks the acidic taste but also heightens the taste of the tomatoes. Try squeezing out some of the pulp of the tomatoes before cooking. Or try adding a bit of grated carrots, which absorb some of the acidity. Try not overcooking because it only increases the acid.

Just a little bit, like half a spoon to a spoon. you don't want the sause to be sweet, especialy if you like it hot like me.

About a tablespoon of sugar per batch of Tomato Sauce will do you wonders. The sugar cuts down the acid in the tomatoes and makes it less acidic. If you still find it too acidic you can always add a little more.

Really there is not set amount but more of a matter of your tastes. Add a little at a time till it is how you want it.
