Burnt Flavor in Spaghetti Sauce

I made spaghetti sauce last night which I cook all day. The sauce burnt to the bottom of the pan. Now, the sauce has a burnt flavor. How do I get rid of the aroma and flavor of the burnt sauce?

Whenever anything gets scorched on the bottom of the pan, empty the pan of sauce before stirring. that seems to keep the burnt flavor from getting into the whole pan full of sauce. (08/15/2005)

Carefully pour the sauce into another pot be careful not to scrape the burnt bottom then add one hole potato pealed. Cook on low. This works for a lot of burnt items. (08/15/2005)

Believe it or not this really works...add a spoon of peanut butter to your sauce. I have had to do this many times and it does remove the burnt taste. Don't know why it works but it does. I was afraid to try it but when I made a restaurant batch of sauce and burnt it I figured I had nothing to loose so I tried it and it worked. (08/16/2005)

Just don't burn it.cook it on low. If you do burn it than just add some water in it and stir it on low for about a min or 2 and then season it. It works. Good luck! (09/14/2005)

I made 2 double batches of sauce and the batch in the cheap pan did scorch to the bottom before I realized it. I did stir the sauce but did not scrape the burnt bottom. It smelled and tasted burnt. I figured I had nothing to loose so I tried this and to my surprise it really did work. It was a large pan so I added a couple tablespoons of peanut butter :) (02/04/2007)

I just tried the peanut butter to the double batch of spaghetti sauce that I am making. I added 3 spoonfuls of peanut butter because of the amount of sauce. It seems to have take the burnt taste out of the sauce. I am simmering it on LOW right now and will keep taste-testing. Sure saved a lot of time, work and money with all the meatballs, too! Thank you!! :) (02/23/2007)

Many people are terribly, deadly allergic to peanuts so make sure you tell people that your sauce contains peanut butter. (05/02/2007)

Thank you -- It's not too bad. It's edible, but there's still a burnt flavor. Not company food, but the boys will still eat it. Chicken caccitore just can not be prepared in a pressure cooker! Maybe when it sits for a while and the obnoxious odor is out of the kitchen it will taste better.

You saved the day (06/17/2007)

I was very hesitant to try it for fear that you would taste the peanut butter because both my husband and myself don't care for peanut butter, but low and behold it worked. I will tell everyone I know about this trick - especially my father - he burns the chili every year during deer season at camp. (09/15/2007)

Just tried the peanut butter suggestion. It worked! How did someone ever think of something like that! I've heard of putting a lot of seasonings in spaghetti sauce but never peanut butter! The potato is a good suggestion also! Great if you've put too much salt in a recipe too.
Thanks for the great tip. (09/27/2007)

Well it worked, but you have to let it sit for a bit if you taste it right away it still tastes burnt.

After a few minutes the burnt flavor is gone. I too was afraid to do it so tried it on a little. Thank goodness it worked it was a really big batch of sauce. (10/07/2007)
