6-in-1 tomatoes
« on: December 14, 2003, 02:27:55 PM »
I made a rookie mistake.  I looked inside my pantry and the cupboard was bare of 6-in-1 tomatoes.  Wonder what it would cost to Federal Express a case of them cross country?  Fortunately I had just enough sauce in the cooler to get me by until they arrive.

Our plans have changed a bit so I will have to wait on testing this latest batch.  I hope to try my new version of the Chicago style. I also ordered the chunky tomato sauce to use in a red sauce for spaghetti.

Many of you seem quite enthusiastic about 6-in-1 brand tomatoes.   I've just ordered a six-pack of 28 oz. cans from (www.escalon.net) and am looking forward to seeing what difference they will make in my pizza sauces.  Thanks for the tip!

 Escalon's site also offers several  pizza sauce recipes using their products.  Although recipes are geared to commercial volumes (5 gallons +),  they can be scaled down for use by pizza aficionados.

I normally use domestically grown San Marzano Crushed Tomatoes (distributed by Simpson Imports, Ltd., New Milford, NJ 07646).  These are available at my local (Raleigh, NC) Harris Teeter and Whole Foods stores for about $1.99 per 28 oz. can.  They make an excellent tomato base for pizza sauce.

Imported Cento (which the owner of an Italian market made a point of telling me was pronounced: "chin-toe") brand San Marzano tomatoes  are also available for around $2.79 per 28 oz. can from the above mentioned stores.

I'm looking forward to experimenting with 6-in1.

Regards,

davtrent

The most common term I hear is they taste very refreshing.  On my Chicago style I don't make a sauce, but instead top the pizza with them straight out of the can.  I then use a mix of dry herbs and cheese on top of them.  Very popular that way.

I'm with DKM on this... spoon them 6-in-1 tomatoes straight out of the can onto deep dish pizza. Sprinkle on a little oregano/garlic/fresh basil etc. to your liking.  :)
