2nd try at deep dish. New and improved post. Now with Pix!
« on: January 18, 2014, 07:56:50 PM »
This 2nd attempt at a 10 in deep dish worked out much better. No more water bombs! I decided to cook the canned tomatoes to reduce the water content. Duh! I kicked up the "sauce" with lots of garlic and onions, spices, etc. Unfortunately I liked the taste of the raw, unadulterated canned tomatoes from the first attempt better, even though it was a water bomb. I has a sad. So. Any suggestions for keeping the fresh taste of the canned toms without all the water?

edit: I noticed my pix came out all side waysy. Still trying to figure this part out.

I slit the sheet. The sheet I slit. And on the slitted sheet I sit.

Yes. Do not cook the tomatoes. If you have excessively watery tomatoes, just drain them. You can do this in a colander or just by putting your tomatoes on a large plate and raising one side of the plate a bit to let gravity separate the excess water from the tomatoes. Or buy tomatoes that are more suited for this kind of sauce straight out of the can. This includes 6 in 1, 7/11, and Tomato Magic, if you can find any of them(and are willing to buy #10 cans).

All three of those are available in 28 oz cans and readily order-able online.

Heard a lot now on the forum about 6in1. Guess I need to try these and keep my francesconi toms for sauce. Thanks for the tips.

Cheers

Um, I'm pretty sure nothing from Stanislaus is available in 28 oz cans. 6 in 1, yes, but not 7/11 or Tomato Magic. One variety of 6 in 1 is available at all GFS Marketplace stores, in #10 cans. (I'm not sure which variety of 6 in 1, but I think it might be the kind without tomato peels.)

I guess it's 6 in 1's in 28 oz can and the Tomato Magic in 31 oz jars. You're right and I don't see the 7/11 in small sized cans. I could have sworn I've seen them before though.
