Help! How to fix metallic taste in tomato sauce?

The Pie Queen | Aug 21, 2007 06:26 AM

So I'm overrun with tomatoes from my garden (I know, a nice problem to have). Last night despite not really feeling up to it, I started a simple tomato sauce- peeled, cored, seeded roma tomatoes, fresh basil, roasted garlic. Well, without thinking I made it in a cast iron pot, and now the whole batch tastes like metal. :(

I tried adding some red wine, and I added a little agave (sweetener). Nothing seems to help.

Suggestions? Or is this batch just doomed?
