I had been using San Marzanos and tried a few cans of Muir Glen Plum Tomatos. I found them to be very acidic. So strongly acidic that they are unacceptable for me.

I switched back to Pastene brand San Marzanos.

I find Muir Glen acidic too but I know lots of people love them.

When buying San Marzano tomatoes make sure you buy the ones made in Italy. It's the soil that the tomatoes grow in that makes them special. The ones grown in California aren't nearly as good.

When the red ripe tomatoes are in season, try just chopping it up, sautè very quickly with evoo, garlic, fresh ground black pepper and salt (don't get the tomatoes all mushy.. just to thoroughly heat them). Toss it together with pasta and fresh basil leaves... as simple as it can get, and as good as it can get!!
