I prefer puree, since it is pure tomatoes, no salt or anything else added. Tomato sauce can have just about anything added to it, including sugar, high fructose corn syrup, salt, spices, MSG, etc. I need to watch my salt, and prefer to add the herbs and spices to my own taste.

Tater,
Spoken like a true Italian. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Bree,
Um... well... after reading Tater's answer...
all of which I did not know... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
what I got is :
I prefer(ed) Tomato sauce because I'm too lazy to
scraaaape! the puree out of the can and mix it forever.
I'm going to get over it. Now. Sheesh. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Jaaj, are you thinking of paste? Puree isn't concentrated, it's about the same consistency as sauce, just without anything added.

Tater,
You are right... again... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Yes. It is "paste" is don't like.
I am unfamiliar with tomato puree.

I am unfamilar with puree in general ...
if you don't count baby food, I mean. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I think I will look for puree. Thank you! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

An easy way to get the paste out of the can:

Remove top lid with can opener; turn can upside down and remove bottom lid, but leave in place. Hold can over pot, and push gently on lid. The entire contents plops right out!

I know what you mean about the thickness though; it can make it a little difficult to mix with other ingredients.

i've always thought ketchup and tomato sauce are basically the same thing,is that so ?
tomato sauce basically is tomatos,sugar,vinegar a few spices and chemicals ,no chillies .is katsup distinctive in some way ?

Rox,
Nope.It's the same stuff; different spelling.
I think someone - probably a manufacturer-
just decided to spell it the way it is most-commonly
pronounced. (?)
Catsup/ketchup has a LOT! more sugar, I think.
Otherwise, you're basically correct there too.

Roxy, I suspect that what you call tomato sauce, is what we call ketchup. What we call tomato sauce comes in a can, and while it can and often does have other ingredients besides tomatoes, it is still mostly tomatoes., and is used as a main ingredient in many Italian dishes, including spaghetti sauce.
Whereas ketchup or catsup has tomato paste, vinegar, sugar or corn syrup, salt, more salt, etc, etc, etc., and usually comes in a bottle (Often a plastic squeeze bottle nowadays), and is used primarily as a condiment on many foods, including (for some people) scrambled eggs, hamburgers, french fries or home fries, meat loaf, hot dogs....

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The difference between ketchup and catsup? Depending on what country you're in and who you ask, it's either a trademark issue or one of certain ingredients or lack thereof, I believe.

You and Bree will agree here -
she single-handedly grows enough of her own
tomatoes to supply a large city. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
