      the whole point of buying tinned tomatoes is that theyre overripe aka not fresh
      a tomato ready to use for a sauce would be way too squishy for a salad/sandwich
      plus tomatoes are only in season for a short period of time anyway

    the only real caveat to this is garden fresh ripe tomatoes. you can sub those in. Canned are at the peak of ripeness, all the time. Grocery store tomatoes are usually garbage in comparison. Some recipes absolutely need fresh, and you just make do with the best you can find.

      I didn't even see fresh peas that often anymore but I certainly do prefer frozen sweetpeas to fresh peas mostly because I don't know what to look for in a good fresh pea. The only downside is that with fresh, you've the option to buy peas still in the pod and the pods make very good stock. I've never seen frozen peas still in the pod except for snowpeas and snap peas, both of which are entirely edible, anyway.

                NTA but my experience with tomatoes canned with calcium chloride is a gummier, chewier texture and is why I tend to avoid them if I can. For whatever reason the tasters in these preferred cans w/ calcium chloride and I personally think it's probably just a familiarity bias but that's just an idea.

                I don't really care if it's DOP or not so long as the texture/taste are right and they're not too fricking watery. I've honestly had decent luck with wegman's DOP or otherwise

    isn't the idea that tomatoes vary widely in quality depending on where they're grown due to the soil type/quality, and that canning those superior tamotoes conserves them well? that's what I was told and it makes a lot of sense to me. I've had some pretty bad home grown tomatoes, and overall their variation in flavor imo approaches that of apples.
