RE: SAN MARZANO tomatoes
The varietal is available at some Union Sq Greenmarket vendors--Migliorelli, I believe, for one--for a short stretch in September. I've bought them to make a fresh sauce, and they're much milder (less intense flavor, less acid, not such a good thing) than the varietal grown in its DOP home around Vesuvius.
Thanks Bob for the info. The next time i go to the Greenmarket at 14th Street i will look around and get the scoop..... Stay tuned. I just made a great sauce this weekend without San Marzano brand. It was Redpack..... Go figure,.... Robin
