Scott, I don't remember seeing Sclafani crushed near me. Can you compare them w 6 in 1?

This has been touched on before,

http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,11829.msg112293.html#msg112293

but apparently there are at least two Sclafani companies. Here are the ones that carry a DOP version

and these are the ones that are supposed to be from NJ

I use the don pepino version.  They're one of the best tomatoes I've had.  When I tasted Paulie's special top secret tomatoes, I didn't really care much about tomatoes, but after getting bitten by the tomato bug, I need to go back and really savor them.  Same for Roberto's Ciao tomatoes.

Also, I've stopped being a skin snob ;)  I gave away some non skinless 6-in-1s, without ever even tasting them.  I need to pick up a new can. The big problem is that I can't get the 6-in-1s in small cans.

All good info.  Thanks guys.  I went out shopping last night with my daughter and we went to a couple of places so I can get a variety of tomatoes by different mans.  I also have an account at Restaurant Depot and they sell a bunch of brands including DOP but not Sclafani.  I have to make a trip there.  All a learning experience and I'm making the same mistakes everyone made along the way...if you're not failing your not trying...

Thanks for that Scott. I'm a minor skin snob but 6in1 gets a pass due to youth memories. I am going to keep a look out for don pepino but still don't recall seeing them.

I found this website while researching DOP.

http://www.sanmarzanotomatoes.org/canned-brands.html

Not sure if it is relevant, current, etc. but it's a start (at least it was for me).
