Re: Canned Tomatoes......

I have been out and bought some chopped and some whole tinned tomatoes so that I can compare them to see the difference .
I bought a cheaper value type range of the tomatoes and one of the more commonly available brands of chopped and whole tinned tomatoes and have plans to compare then to see the difference in how much , if any extra liquid is in the chopped tomatoes !
Will take photos !

Re: Canned Tomatoes......

Sounds good, Mummza. Look forward to the results. Guess your family is going to be eating lots of tomato-based dishes in the next little while in the name of science wink

I'm making the most of high Summer's fresh tomatoes from the balcony and from the five-days-a-week farmers' market around the corner at the moment. The cooler weather won't be far away ... Then, tinned tomatoes will revisit my kitchen for curries, soups and braises. I don't eat pasta and don't like tomato-based sauces. I make for others but don't eat myself.

Look forward to hearing the results from your experiment. Wonder how they'll transfer to the brands of tinned tomatoes available here. I only buy tinned tomatoes that use Australian tomatoes (becoming more difficult week by week as supermarket "own brands" using imported product take over shelf space) Got to support the local industry where we can.

Re: Canned Tomatoes......

Mummza - for a fair comparison, you would need to chop up the whole tomatoes before comparing.

The reason I say this is that tomatoes contain a lot of watery juice inside them. With chopped tomatoes this will come out and mix with the thicker canning juice, making it look thin, whereas with whole tomatoes the watery stuff stays inside each fruit, and the canning juice outside stays thicker.

My hypothesis is that this is what makes chopped tomatoes look more watery than whole ones.

"a photograph of the contents of the chopped tomatoes". I hope you will be posting the photographs to a place where us Luddites will be able to view them.
