What is the foam on my tomato sauce

goodeatsgal | Sep 18, 2009 09:41 PM

I have a big pot of fresh tomato sauce simmering on the stove right now - trying to reduce it down to make a thick pasta sauce. There is a pale pink foamy like substance coming out of the sauce and floating on the top. It doesn't look like fat or oil, just pink foam. What is it, and should I skim it off?
