    Said to be the best tinned tomatoes money can buy, San Marzano plum tomatoes are unsurpassed for cooking as they have fewer seeds and firmer, meatier flesh. They cook down faster and retain a richer and sweeter flavour making them perfect for pasta and pizza sauces. The Italians love them so much they conferred on the San Marzano a 'protected designation of origin' (DOP) status, such as is also enjoyed by Stilton cheese and the sparkling wines of the Champagne region.

    This recognized and protected variety comes from the town of San Marzano in the Campania region of southern Italy above the toe of the boot.

    People who have tasted the native tomatoes grown in the volcanic soils claim that they can tell the difference between tomatoes grown there and those grown elsewhere. The rich volcanic soil from Mount Vesuvius gives the tomato its distinct richness and depth of flavour. In fact, they are the only tomato that can be used for a true, recognized Neapolitan pizza! For an easy delicious pasta sauce they can simply be squeezed down by hand and added to a 'soffritto' the sautéed mix of finely chopped onions, carrots and celery which make the base of any tomato sauce.
