While the tomato originated in the New World and didn't make it to Italy until the 17th century, it made up for lost time quickly!
Not only is Italian cuisine, of course, renowned for tomatoes, but the San Marzano region near Naples is considered one of the best tomato-growing regions in the world - a true tomato heaven! These are the real thing, certified from the Sarnese-Nocerino area.
Why are these canned tomatoes so good? Healthy, ripe tomatoes are processed the day of arrival, preserving all of the genuine freshness and perfume of the tomato. And there's no added salt
, very unusual for canned tomatoes in the United States. Control exactly how much salt you'd like in your recipe, with no worries about excess sodium. Like some other wonderful European agricultural products, these tomatoes have a D.O.P. certification (Denominazione di Origine Protetta), ensuring their provenance and quality.
Ingredients: San Marzano peeled tomatoes, San Marzano tomatoe juice, citric acid.
