Urgent!! - Is it OK to make tomato sauce in Staub pot?

DishyDiva | May 17, 2008 11:41 AM

Help me with your wisdom, please!

I'm preparing to make a creole sauce for a dinner party today and realized that the only pot I have large enough to make the required portion is my Staub dutch oven.

I recall that we're not suppose to cook acidic foods, like tomato sauce, in cast iron. Is this true?

The Staub pot I have has a dark, matte interior that is NOT enameled. What would happen if I make the tomato-based creole sauce in this pot? Will it damage the pot or affect the flavour of the sauce?
