What is tomatoes, canned? About the ingredient tomatoes, canned. Including 684 recipes with tomatoes, canned, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Canned tomatoes, or tinned tomatoes, are tomatoes, usually peeled, that are sealed into a can after having been processed by heat.

Plum tomatoes are the most common choice for canning, since they have a greater solid-to-liquid ratio than other tomatoes and make a more substantial canned product. Commercial canners use a processing tomato, which has a more firm outer peel and pectin layer.

In areas and situations where in-season, perfectly ripe tomatoes are not available, canned tomatoes are often used as an alternative to prepare dishes such as tomato sauce or pizza.

The top uses for canned tomatoes are Italian or pasta sauces, chili, soup, pizza, stew, casseroles, and Mexican cuisine. As they are often more flavorful than commercially produced fresh tomatoes, canned tomatoes are not well suited for curries as the flavour overpowers the spices.
