Tesco Value Tinned Plum Tomatoes
Advantages: Tasty and cheap
Disadvantages: None at all!
One of the Value products from Tesco that I always have in my cupboard is Tinned Plum Tomatoes. I don't eat fresh tomatoes, I haven't done since I was a child they always reminded me of my nanas false teeth but I eat tomatoes soup and sauce etc.
They cost just 31p for a 400g tin, compared to other brands this is very reasonable and would no doubt make you question their quality but I use them regularly for a variety of dishes and have found them to be very good.
The label round the tin is in the regular red Value design It has the Tesco Value logo at the top and underneath it says Peeled Plum Tomatoes in Tomato Juice. The front of the label has a picture of what I assume is meant to be the tomatoes but its not a very good likeness! The tin also shows the GDA's for half a tin.
The tin also gives ingredients which are just tomatoes 60%, tomato juice and citric acid. The cooking instructions are given along with more detailed nutritional values. The customer is also informed that the tomatoes are suitable for vegetarian and the tin is made from recyclable steel.
In the tins I've used there has usually been 4 good sized plum tomatoes, the juice is nice and thick and apart from the odd one having the little end piece where the stalk is attached still on it they look very good.
As I said I don't eat tomatoes on their own. but I use these regularly to make sauces and soups. These value tomatoes are plump juicy and really add a good tomato kick to the dish.
Blended with cooked onion they make a lovely pasta sauce or a base for spaghetti bolognaise. Sometimes I add some herbs or spices or even a dash of Tabasco to it to give a different flavour. When I make a bowl of this sauce I always keep some in the fridge to use the next day. It always slightly thickens after 24 hours and makes a brilliant sauce for a pizza base.
You can buy the value tinned tomatoes ready chopped and I did try these once but found them to be very watery and they didn't seem to have such a nice flavour as the whole plum tomatoes.
I would definitely recommend Tesco Value Tinned Plum Tomatoes, they are a really good price and make an excellent base for many dishes. We find them to be tasty, versatile and a bargain too.
Summary: Well worth a try
