Nice one OP. I like this brand of tinned tomatoes. Gonna go load up this evening.
I find that by the time I've cooked them I can't taste the difference between these and the cheapest (60c?) tinned tomatoes from the supermarket.
They're also from Italy, also picked by slave labourers, also distribution channels managed by the mafia
Where is the ethical tin of tomatoes? Or do you have to choose lower carbon footprint fresh tomatoes that haven't been shipped half way around the world for them to be ethical?
In the meantime, the 60c tins work for me (although they seem to cost 62c where I live out in the sticks for some reason - freight?).
Will buy them the first time now… reason being: recommended on OzBargain.
I did the same thing during the last sale, purely out of curiosity.
Was not disappointed.
Some of the borderline sensual dedication to tinned fruit concerned me in the last OzB thread, but if you're looking for tomatoes in a can, these are good.
Yep these are the Eneloop of the tinned tom world.
Great in curries, chillies, spag bol, etc.
Sweet tomatoes! (or: "Sweet! Tomatoes!", if you like)
I find these have a grassy taste along side the sweetness. I like them! Apart from the sweetness what other flavours do you taste?
I taste tomatoes and metal.
Open the can before eating.
@MattyD: I do.
@klownvandamn: That's what they say on MAFS
@RSmith: The metallic taste is caused by a chemical reaction between the acidity of the tomatoes and the tin cans they were in.
@klownvandamn: Aren't the cans plastic lined?
Metal taste should not be present
Finely chopped tomatoes or Chunky Tomato Soup
Ok, $0.6 saved!
TBH, i tried these last time i made Spag bol & again 2nite with a Chilli Con Carne, i really don't taste the difference between 'Mutti' & any other tinned tomato - I usually use the Coles Organic variety, or non organic if im feeling cheap…
For this price, it's well worth it though!
I feel like you really taste the difference when you're doing just a plain tomato sauce. The difference is huge.
That is because Coles brand tinned tomatoes are excellent
Just add these tomotoes to pan, heat, add some salt, and fresh basil at the end. Proper Italian. Thanks OP will stock up
You didn't add olive oil. Fail….
Well, he is a Proper Italian but not a real Italian.
Lol :) 1/4 Italian, 1/4 Scandinavian, 1/4 English 1/4 proper. That is the ops makeup from this point.
Plus he added tomatoes WHOLE
And forgot to turn on the stove.
Polpa tin as in pic by OP
;) got me
Time to re-stock 😍
Usually plenty of chopped Mutti's down my local pub for anyone game enough.
Someone had to say it, turns out it was you. :)
yum. tomatoes picked by exploited Africans in Italy.
you Should look in your own backyard, what about the Italians that are trying to stay in Australia who are exploited by Australian farmers, bet you didn’t think of that when you’re eating your grape vine Australian tomatoes
What do you mean trying to stay?
to extend their visa, they are sent to farms around Australia to work, then the government will allow them to extend their stay by 6 - 12 months.
How do these compare to Annalisa?
Same but different.
good discussion in here
i'm converted now after making two spag bols with them
But aren't these italian tomatoes? What's the difference compared to the Italian Coles branded ones at 80c?
Surely it's worth paying a tiny premium for aussie ones where the regulations are strong?
Aussie ones are always $1 in harrisfarm, SPC ones.
That's one thing I miss about living in Sydney compared to QLD. Harris Farms was a great place to shop, always something different compared to colesworth.
Agreed, would be great if there was more support on here for products that are Australian grown, made or produced.
Just because it's cheaper, doesn't mean there arent ethical, environmental and/or other impacts so you can save 6c
Thanks OP - gonna buy a couple of dozen at least. These are the best tinned tomatoes for making pasta sauce. My brother liked them so much when he came down, he took a dozen tins back to Singapore with him in his airplane luggage.
How about them returning back to Italy? Surely, they aren't being held at gunpoint
They are working there to obtain a working holiday visa extension, to do that they have to work in a farm, no way around that. I don't think a farmer leveraging on this obligation to obtain cheap (or in some cases free) workforce is fair. Nothing to do with "love it or leave it" mate, it's just unfair, and sometimes illegal. These guys love Australia and wish to stay here for a while, obviously they're not being held at gunpoint but it's just not fair being exploited by some ruthless farmer.
Ruthless farmer… What a dramatization!!!
@RSmith: Sorry, English as a second language I guess ;)
Nice one OP.
I use these in tortilla soup.
I am Italian born and raised (lived there for the first 30 years of my life, before moving here) and my favourite brand in Italy was Mutti. They are just better.
I suggest everyone to try the Baby Roma tins (whole or chopped). They are next level, at least for pasta sauce.
