i mostly have cans of whole peeled, crushed, and paste, but i also stock a can or two of hunt's canned sauce for specific dishes.

i wait for cento brand imported san marzanos (cento also sells domestic sm's) to go on sale twice a year and i stock up. i buy about 20 cans each time of whole peeled, and maybe 10 of paste. i save over $2 per can by doing that. they go surprisingly quickly, though.

i don't buy many cans of crushed and no puree. whole peeled can be turned into crushed or puree pretty easily with a knife and/or your hands.

Crushed and paste, whatever brand is on sale. Usually the 28oz. cans can be had for a buck at the club store.

I'm not crazy about the texture of chunky tomatoes.

Tomatoes

I checked my larder.. Pantry to you who don't know the other word...
I buy Stewed, Diced, Puree, Sauce, Paste, Crushed by the case when they are in season and on sale. Brand varies but Hunts, DelMonte are the best for the price. I use them in soups, stews and stewed heated in a sauce pan on med. Lo to Med. heat. I add three sliced of bread, chunked (torn apart) and 1TBS Splenda. Cook until hot and serve as salad or side either one. One 15oz can serves 2 people just fine...

I usually buy whole or diced plumb tomatoes. Low, or no salt added. If I need them broken down more I use the immersion blender.

You have too much time on your hands. But then so do I. That's why we think alike.

One tomato, two tomato, three tomato, four. Five tomato, six tomato, seven tomato more. You're out!
