    I didn't know you were Italian. I'm not, but I look it, haha. Not kidding. When people try and guess my ethnicity, they almost always guess Italian. Must be all the garlic. I grew up in a neighborhood that had a LOT of Italian families, and have always had an affinity for Italian culture.

    I like garlic and at one time grew a lot of elephant garlic, I do make a lot of my own tomato sauces , I prefer fresh tomatoes but canned will work, we use a ton of garlic especially on sea food and in our Italian cooking .
    I grew up around a lot of Italians and they preferred to make their own sauces but gardens were common then not so much these days as land ownership has switched from large rural lots and farms . you need a couple acres to raise a good garden at least in my opinion .

    A lot of Italians buy bushels of roma tomatoes near the end of the season to make their sauces that they 'can' for future use. I say sauce, but often it's just a process of dumping the tomatoes in boiling water for a minute to loosen the skins and then crushing the tomatoes, removing the skins and seeds and then stewing them for a bit before canning them in mason jars. They may season them, but often they don't, saving that part for the making of the actual sauce for each meal.

They used cilantro instead of mint and it was also amazing.
    Went to dinner many years ago at a friends house, my wife and I...his wife serves borscht, then plops a big spoonful of what I thought was sourcream in the middle...I didnt want to offend but I didnt want it in my soup. I ate it and it was ok pretty good but I found out it wasnt sour cream but plain yogurt

    Plum tomatoes are best for marinara sauce

    I can also take garlic and olive oil with balsamic vinegar for a simple dressing for pasta. Add salt.

    I believe that roma and plum are different names for the same tomato.

    About a gallon bag of Roma’s make a quart of canned sauce. I don’t put anything else in it when canning because other ingredients can lower the PH so I can water bath them only. Have about 12 Roma plants growing.
    So far, the only ACTUAL legitimate race crime of 2020 was taking a woman off a bottle of syrup because she was black.

    12!? They'll yield a few hundred pounds of tomatoes.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.
