Can someone enlighten me as to what is a good price for Alta Cucina's in the 6lb. can? Amazon has them for $15.98 with prime shipping. If you break down the price per ounce, an equivalent 28 ounce can from the grocery store would cost $4.34. That seems like a high price.
If I were to get some, what is the best way to turn them into sauce. My favorite local place uses them, and also a new Neapolitan place by my office uses them. I typically heat a little bit of fresh garlic in oil and add that to whatever tomato product I'm using. For a NY sauce, I'll add fresh basil, dried oregano, and if necessary, some salt. For a Margherita, I add fresh basil and spices after the tomato sauce is on the pie.
