Your Sunday sauce may be too acidic if it's too sour or tart or causes heartburn after spaghetti and meatballs.
This may be because the tomatoes in store-bought canned sauces are acidified to preserve freshness and prevent bacterial growth
These goods may also be manufactured with low-quality, acidic tomatoes, which might give you and your visitors heartburn.
Sugar and salt balance acidity and increase tomato flavour, but it's easy to overdo. Taste after each pinch.
Add chopped carrots or celery to your sauce. Cooked carrots give a slight sweetness that may fix your sauce
Baking soda can reduce acidity in homemade tomato sauce that's too acidic.
