These little tomatoes are best used as a simple (simple!) companion for outstanding pasta (for example Bucatini By Pastificio Faella From Gragnano, or Maccheroni by Martelli, Toscana, or Latini Spaghetti Chitarra 1.1lb) by just sweating 2 or 3 cloves of fresh garlic in evo oil, than adding these tomatoes with a pinch of salt on MILD heat and gently heat them up, then add to prepared pasta. You can add a good pesto or fresh basil to taste, if you like. The experience will be otherwordly!
I had tried them first in 2009, that is how I know the price difference. At that time the small jar (520g) was 22.50$, and I found that a bit steap. But now they offer 2 sizes, and now you get a kilo (1000g) for 25.50, respective the small jar for 14.00$. Now I have tested the product again, because I was suspicious about that. Would that be a lesser quality, now with the lower price? No, not at all, it is really the same great item. Maybe the higher price had to with a lesser harvest back then? I have no idea, but I love love love these tomatoes.
I have seen videos on youtube about fancy restaurants in New York City putting them on their fancy pizza. I can’t travel there, but I can get the ingredients delivered to my kitchen!
