A True San Marzano.

John,

To clarify a point, the Carmelina's are not the DOP San Marzanos, as the company itself points out at its website at http://carmelinabrands.com/pages/san_marzano.php (see the last paragraph on the page). Nonetheless, they are supposed to be very good tomatoes.

These are the same brand that Bill recommended to me. I'll try them soon as soon as I use up some of the tomatoes I already have. I have no doubt they are excellent base on both your recommendations.

John,

LOL. I remembered about the Carmelina tomatoes because I had researched the Carmelina DOP/non-DOP matter over a couple of years ago after I learned that Grimaldi's was using the Carmelina's, as I reported at Reply 16 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,3669.msg54056.html#msg54056 (see the section on Sauce). Judging from this menu, http://www.grimaldispizzeria.com/docs/menu.pdf, it looks like at least the Grimaldi's outside of NY and NJ are still using the Carmelina's.

Amazon has them 28oz cans by the case $27.62 free shipping.

That seems reasonable to me.  I may have to get a case to try!

Don't miss my award-winning video* on how I use Carmelina's to make sauce:

*Actually I was the only nominee and I was the sole judge

I use the whole ones rather than chopped.
