san marzano tomatoes... advice sought

withalonge | Aug 2, 2006 10:48 PM

so I've got a few of these ripening in my yard. I tried one last night, just raw.. and well, my response was "ehh..its o.k,". not the robust tomato flavor I was hoping for. although I should mention, I've only eaten canned tomatoes of this variety before. and these are the first tomatoes from the bush, so maybe they'll get better??? I know they aren't meant for salad and the like.. but how do I bring out that rich, tomato-ey flavor?

maybe I need to roast them like so many of you hounds have recently recommended. or perhaps there is another way to enjoy these particular types of tomatoes? please advise.
TIA
