The process to make the best french fries dipping sauce with natural ingredients:
The use of natural ingredients is important in the making of this wonderful dipping sauce. Fresh herbs and vegetables are a must for the perfect taste. They bring out the best tang taste in the sauce that lasts for long and are what makes the sauce special. The best fresh herbs for making this dipping are basil, thyme, parsley, and mint. If you live in a warm climate, you can also use rosemary. Make sure that the herbs you use are fresh. Also, you can always leave a little bit of an herb behind in order to bring out the flavor of that particular herb.
It is a good idea to use fresh garlic and you can make this sauce using only garlic. Fresh mint is a must with this sauce. This is one of the best french fries dipping sauces that goes well with any type of meat and pasta dish as well. The pasta can be of any type. This sauce can be put on both fried and baked pasta. In that scenario, you can also make the dipping sauce with tomatoes, chili pepper, olive oil, or any other type of vinegar. This sauce can be made in a crockpot, a saucepan, or any other large pot
One thing that should be kept in mind is that the herbs and garlic should be washed before adding in the olive oil or garlic, basil, and parsley. The washed herbs and garlic are less pungent and not as strong. In order to achieve a higher level of flavor, add the washed herbs and garlic at the end of the cooking time. The same applies to olive oil. To achieve the best flavor and the highest level of preservation, never add olive oil to a raw sauce.
Before preparing this sauce, you should start by seasoning the cooking water and place it in the fridge. This will give you a clean taste. This process will remove any impurities and excess salt. In the end, always use a stainless steel spoon to stir the sauce. Don’t use a metal spoon because it can make the sauce taste metallic. To avoid adding excess seasoning to your sauce, add only 1 teaspoon of salt for every 4 ounces of tomatoes.
After you have washed the tomatoes and drained them, chop them finely. Once done, add those chopped tomatoes and olive oil to the sauce. Mix them up together and bring the mixture to a boiling temperature. Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for about 3 minutes. In the meantime, slice the mushrooms thinly and add them to the boiling sauce.
By this time, the sauce would have been reduced in volume. Here comes the next part, adding this mushroom sauce to some tomatoes and cooking it again. If you are using canned tomatoes for this, be sure to drain them and put them in a heat-proof container. Pour the boiling sauce into these tomatoes and let them simmer for about 5 minutes. At the same time, peel and chop the shallots and garlic. In the end, stir the sauce gently so that all of the flavors blend well.
Now you can taste the result and make adjustments to suit your tastes. Try adding soy sauce, vinegar, and salt if you want a sweeter taste. If you want a spicier taste, add chili powder, garlic, and cayenne pepper. If you want a savory taste, add soy sauce, pepper, salt, and vinegar. You can also add lemon juice, vinegar, and oregano. And, if you want to make it spicy without going overboard, you can add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, or minced ginger. Also, the salt can be omitted, but the sauce will be a bit spicier without it.
