Made soup and used tomato paste. Now the soup has that tin flavor from the can. How do I remedy this?

Does this happen to you? What to do!

  • Agree with PMSmom10 - a tablespoon of sugar bit of sugar cook for a little longer and if you still taste the acid a little more sugar till it actually takes the metalic taste out...
    I have read that if you have an aluminum pan, the tomatoes and the acid play off the pan..were you using stainless steel to cook your soup?

  • If you add a little bit of sugar to your soup it should get rid of that flavor.

  • I have never heard of tomato paste used in soup, canned tomatoes yes, I'd say sugar too but unsure of that give it a try.

  • Okay, I added the sugar and now am letting it sit overnight in Calphalon stainless steel pot. My kids hate crushed tomatoes so I use paste or puree because dh and I like the tomato flavor in it. It's a vegetable soup.

    Thanks girls!
