Tomato sauce is such a passé – said no one till date. But its 2018 and we believe anything can happen. Say like – tomato sauce will no more be served in a bottle to a spread over your sandwich. It will be served in condensed slices, just like our cheese slices.
Yep. Believe it or not, that move is round the corner!
The easy of using tomato sauce couldn’t have gotten any advanced. In mamma days, the sauce used to be served in glass bottles which would take ages to slide to the mouth of the bottom, eventually it even needed some pounding. Then somebody came up with the squeezy-nozzled bottles to ease the pain. But now, the pain of putting pressure while squeezing is also going to be taken care of.
The company which is coming up with the product of tomato sauce slices claims its 'all natural, no mess and flavour packed' and can revolutionize the sauce industry.
The Kickstarter campaign statement says:
"The slice is a tantalizing layer of flavour and lets you enjoy a perfect portion with every bite."
"We've got a clean label. Our ingredients are non-GMO, gluten-free, all-natural with no artificial flavours, preservatives, or high-fructose corn syrup.”
"It's so easy to add a slice. Because it's in slice form, there's no sticky mess or soggy bread, no 'liquidy' separation and no uneven squeezing from a part-empty bottle like with many traditional condiments."
Emily Williams is the brain behind this unique and slightly absurd creation.
Like most invention, this one too was formed by accident. Williams was in her restaurant kitchen in Michigan making BBQ sauce. She braised the veggies and instead of throwing away the discarded material, she mixed them, ground and dried them to make slices of them.
When it dawned upon her that this could be done for any kind of sauce, she tried to come up with a recipe where no preservatives and high fructose corn syrup could be used.
The campaign has raised a good amount of fund to fend for the equipment, labour, ingredients, shipping, and packaging. However, a tiny glitch still remains that each of the slices needs to be packed separately which means an alarming level of plastic will be involved.
The slices can stay for as long as a year without being refrigerated. That’s easy-peasy!
Well, easy or more easy, we’re certainly left with a weird taste in our mouth with this modification of our humble tomato sauce!
I mean what next, cheese in a spray can?
