    Stefauntie's Note:

    I attempted to put on a good brown sauce for PCP.. with about 50/50 great vs horrible reviews. Since some people have had great luck with it, as have I, I can only assume the others were doing something wrong in the execution. I read that I cannot remove the recipe, so I'm just cancelling my account. If you have any more hatemail for me because YOUR sauce didn't turn out.. I will not be able to receive it. Best of luck to those who DO know how to cook and enjoy the sauce :) ... S

    1. 1
      Saute onions, celery, and salt until transparent.
    2. 2
      Combine in a large pot with tomatoes, tomato paste, mushrooms, and garlic.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil, then simmer for 4 hours.
    4. 4
      Add pepper, oregano, and broth: simmer about 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add flour and oil. It's like making gravy -- start with 2 cups of each, blend well (I use a big whisk). Depending on how thick you like your sauce, you MAY NEED TO ADD MORE of either. Additional chicken broth may also be used if you would like to thin the sauce.
    6. 6
      Ready to use, jar, or freeze.

      This is a great recipe ! Next time I would puree the veg. before adding tomatoes, etc. I used fresh ground pepper so it was a little hot. I like it spicy but you could use less pepper or table pepper to lessen the hotness. Other than that, made 12 mason jars full ....great gifts idea for those away from home!

      I lived in Pictou County for a good while and ate my fair share of pizza from the big 3 (Sam's, Acropole, and Alice's), and this recipe is nowhere close to the 'brown sauce' the region has become famous for.

      I'm certainly not trying to be rude either but this recipe is insane. The amounts of some of the ingredients are just beyond comprehension....2 cups of flour??? 2 cups of oil? I wouldn't feed the finished product to a swine. No joke. 1/2 cup of pepper? Look, this recipe is bogus. Plain and simple. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MAKE THIS RECIPE. I have made it a personal mission to nail down the real recipe (as close as possible) and will be sharing it on here, facebook, etc. In the meantime, save your time and ingredients.

      Maybe I just didn't follow the recipe correctly, but when I tried to make this recipe, I found it tasted and looked like slop. It certainly wasn't Pictou County Pizza sauce. It was almost like a gravy as opposed to pizza sauce. I will attempt it again, but this time, it certainly wasn't what I was looking for.
