Giving San Marzanos Another Try
Back in 2011, I went on a plum tomato binge. I think I grew like six or seven varieties of plum tomatoes including a plant or two of these San Marzanos.
Because of where they sit in the pizza universe, there's a draw to these that is unnatural for me, I think. I actually don't eat a lot of tomatoes if I can avoid them. I do, however, eat a lot of 'sauces and pureees'. On pizzas. On sandwiches. On noodles of all sorts.
I also haven't canned anything in a few years. The effort just never yielded a lot of upside for me.
But, after seeing these Bonnie Plants heirloom variety sitting on the shelf of Home Depot over the weekend, I just.simply.couldn't.resist. Into the cart they went. Along with some other things that will cause me agita all summer long. But, that's for another day.
