What's the difference between crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce?
Crushed tomatoes are minimally cooked, leaving them with the fresh flavor they achieved on the vine. They are sometimes processed with a bit of salt, garlic or basil, but mostly, the flavors are left alone. Since tomato sauce is cooked longer, the tomato flavor is less fresh and more subdued.
Crushed tomatoes are crushed, bit still have some small.chumls of tomato, while tomato sauce is blended so it has a smooth consistency.
