Interesting note Kimemerson. Perhaps some of the aeromatics dissappear quickly after crushing. Kind of like exposing roasted coffee beans to air. Mojo goes away quickly.

I just bought a can of the Cento San Marzano tomatoes before I read this thread and they say "Product of San Marzano Italy" on the label. They don't have the serial number or a special seal. Does this mean they are not the "real" San Marzano's.

I just looked up Cento San Marzanos on the Internet, and they are the real deal -- unless they have a b-tier brand. They have their certification # on their web site.

I like the idea of blind tastings -- let's have a few tasting parts and you can report the results. On this theme, we are having friends over the a glass of wine and an olive oil tasting this weekend. One of FB's customers produces high quality EVO in Pasa Robles, and we are going tasting that, along with the new harvest of FB's Tuscan import EVO.

We'll let you know how it goes.
