The burnt flavor is gone, but it still smells burnt, so the peanut butter took care of half the problem. (11/13/2007)

I tried the potato and the peanut butter trick. It helped a bit, but not fully. Better than nothing.(12/30/2007)

It works in homemade soup, also. I just tried it in turkey soup and it worked 100%. (01/20/2008)

Touchdown! Here it is SuperBowl Sunday and I had a bunch of people coming over for the game and spaghetti. I needed a lot of sauce so I used a cheaper pot (because it was very large) and ended up burning the sauce pretty badly. I had no time to re-fix the meal so I took everyone's advice and it saved the day. I had to put about 5 tablespoons of peanut butter in my sauce because there was so much of it. Thanks for the great advice! (02/03/2008)

We just used it to rescue a double batch of lasagna sauce on Christmas day, and it worked like a charm. We ended up adding almost 5 tablespoons of peanut butter to a dutch oven-size pot and while the sauce changed color for sure, no one tasted the peanut butter and no one tasted the burn. I suggest stirring in a tablespoon, waiting about three minutes, then tasting. Repeat this until the burned flavor is gone. This was a great tip, thank you so much! (12/25/2008)
