I've been trying to perfect my sauce and have recently started using fresh tomatoes instead of canned. The results haven't been too promising. Surprisingly, my sauce with canned tomatoes is meaningfully better than my sauce with fresh tomatoes. Overall the canned tomatoes are more tasty and "tomatoey". The fresh ones are somewhat bland.
I would have thought that fresh tomatoes would blow away the canned variety. Is this not the case? Or am I doing something wrong?
