Canned tomatoes are pantry all-stars. Here’s how to choose and use them.

Unlike most canned fruits and vegetables (think spinach), a quality canned tomato isn’t some poor imitation of the fresh version. The challenge is that unlike a fresh one that you can see, smell, even squeeze, a canned tomato is … in a can. So, how do you know which ones to buy? So many brands, so many forms: whole peeled, with or without basil, garlic, chiles. Diced. Petite diced. Crushed, pureed, stewed — even fire-roasted.
