Source for smaller cans of tomatoes (14 oz)
« on: January 15, 2018, 09:15:30 PM »
I've been using the 28 oz can of Carmelina San Marzanos recently and they taste amazing and make a great sauce for my NY style and NP style pizza.  However, I'm usually only cooking 1-2 pizzas at a time, once a week if I'm lucky.  I can freeze the unused sauce, but after it thaws more than once or sits in the freezer too long, it gets watery and loses some flavor, so I'd like to try and find some smaller cans of tomatoes so I'm not wasting as much.

I live in Massachusetts and can either go through local places here if anyone knows of any or I can buy through Amazon.  Any ideas/suggestions?

Quit being cheap and wash your dogs with the rest.  What's a can cost $3?

Thanks?  It's not all about the price, but I'd rather not waste half a can if I don't have to.

They are very good, I have ordered them a few times.  Just the right size for a small batch.

$2/can

That's perfect Mitch-I didn't know they sold the same brand in a smaller size-thanks!

You bet.  The larger size https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CEW2SXE/?tag=pmak-20 is $4/can.  So, at least on Amazon, no premium charge for smaller cans.

But, I do not know what the pricing is on the store shelves to know if the Amazon price is high or not.

I've never seen these in stores around me, so these will definitely work!

You are in good company.  Both Norma and Bill/SFNM have been positive about the Carmelinas.

Here are a couple of threads started by Norma that you may get a kick out of:

https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=21559.0

Both discuss sauce with these tomatoes.

Use the rest to make a nice marinara or something, make a lasagne.

Nwin,

FYI, several years ago, I discovered that a Grimaldi's in Arizona was using the Carmelina San Marzano tomatoes:

The tomatoes are not the DOP San Marzanos but they are still good tomatoes and the price should be lower.

Those Amazon prices are about what they sell for in store here at Albertson's.

IMO this brand is hit and miss, just like all of them. One year they were the best I ever had, the next had no flavor at all. I tried a can again about 2 months ago for pasta that was really good though.
