There is a method to our madness! 😉 Our sauces are shelf-stable and only cooked for a short time prior to being sealed up in glass jars, ready for you to crack them open and cook your delicious, exciting, from-scratch meals with a little help from us. With this brief cooking time, and packing as much concentrated flavor into these little jars of goodness, we found that using tomato paste (made with just non-gmo tomatoes, all concentrated down to delicious goodness) offers so much more rich flavor. Not only that, the paste provides a richer texture, so we are able to use ZERO STABILIZERS in our sauces!
