San Marzano tomatoes at the local King Soopers - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • San Marzano tomatoes at the local King Soopers

    Hi, All,
    I was suprised to see some DOP san marzano canned tomatoes at my local King Sooper's. They were $6 a can, so a little pricey, but I was glad to see them carrying them. They were in the italian specialty food section. They appear to be the real deal. They are labeled as: Pomodoro S. Marzano dell'Agro Sarnese-Nocerino (DOP).

    Here is a link to that DOP...I have not tried them yet.

    Hey Drake,
    I've gone one better and sourced some San Marzano and also some Italian 'Cuor De Bue' tomatoes and seeded them for planting. In fact, I put 1/4 ton of matured horse manure on my dug veggie patch today in readiness for their planting out in about 3 to 4 weeks.
    I also have some good old Auzzie tomatoes (in the rear punnets) called 'Mortgage Buster' (as they were developed by a guy that were so successful that he paid off his household mortgage in around 4 years), 'Roma', (which are also labelled as 'Roma San Marzano') and 'Big Boy'. I will end up with around 30 bushes so tomatoes to burn around christmas and plenty of tomato paste and sauces.
    It will be interesting to see how they grow side by side and fruit.
    My favourite tomatoes but mainly for eating is the are the Grosse Lisse.

    grow your own tomatoes

    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

      Drake - I've been using the Delallo San Marzano's for a while now. Mine are $1.00 a can cheaper ($4.99) since I can buy directly from Delallo's store. The sauce I've been making is a big hit with the friends & family. I just got a large can of a different brand from Pennmac for $6.99, but it was a 100+ oz can. I'll be making a big batch of sauce with the new tomatoes soon.

        Have yet to be dissapointed in LaValle's DOPs.
