Here are some common uses for plum tomatoes:

  1. Sauces and Salsas: Plum tomatoes are often used as the base for pasta sauces, pizza sauces, and tomato salsas due to their meaty texture and lower water content.

  2. Canning and Preserving: Their firmness and concentrated flavor make plum tomatoes a popular choice for canning and preserving, as they hold up well during the cooking and canning process.

  3. Roasting and Grilling: Plum tomatoes are delicious when roasted or grilled, as the heat intensifies their natural sweetness and enhances their flavor. They can be served as a side dish, added to salads, or used in sandwiches.

  4. Soups and Stews: Plum tomatoes are commonly used in soups, stews, and chili recipes to add depth and richness to the dish. They contribute a robust flavor and help thicken the broth.

  5. Salads: While plum tomatoes are not typically used in fresh salads due to their denser texture, they can be diced or added to tomato salads, Caprese salads, or bruschetta for a burst of flavor.

  6. Tomato Paste and Purée: The concentrated flavor of plum tomatoes makes them ideal for making tomato paste or purée, which are commonly used as a base in many recipes.

  7. Drying: Plum tomatoes can be sliced and dried to create sun-dried tomatoes, which are often used in Mediterranean dishes, salads, and pasta recipes.


To cook stew using canned plum tomatoes, you can follow these general steps:

  1. Gather your ingredients: canned plum tomatoes, protein of your choice (such as beef, chicken, or vegetables), aromatics (onions, garlic), vegetables (carrots, potatoes, etc.), and seasonings (salt, pepper, herbs, spices).

  2. Heat some oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add diced onions and minced garlic, sautéing until they become translucent and fragrant.

  3. Add your choice of protein (e.g., beef, chicken) to the pot and cook until it browns on all sides. If using vegetables, you can add them at this stage as well.

  4. Open the can of plum tomatoes and pour it into the pot. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break down the tomatoes into smaller pieces.

  5. Season the stew with salt, pepper, and any additional herbs or spices of your preference. Common choices include bay leaves, thyme, oregano, or paprika.

  6. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the stew simmer for about 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld and the ingredients to become tender. Stir occasionally and adjust the seasoning if needed.

  7. Once the stew reaches your desired consistency and the flavors have developed, it is ready to be served. Remove any bay leaves before serving.

Other Information
Plum tomatoes are believed to have originated in Italy, particularly around the region of Rome. They were named "Roma" after the city, and the name "plum tomato" comes from their resemblance to plums.
