Marcella Hazan recipe--mystery phrase

blue room | | Nov 25, 2006 06:35 PM

In a simple recipe for spaghetti sauce, she writes: "simmer..45 minutes..until the fat floats free from the tomato"
what does that mean??

I am cooking canned tomatoes, butter, salt, onion--I do not think the "fat" was ever NOT "free" from the tomato
What does "until the fat floats free of the tomato" mean?
