The right tomatoes make all the difference. Yes, that’s right. They save lives, lasagnas*, and sunburned skin throughout the world (soaked in buttermilk). Saying I’ve experimented with different canned tomatoes is like saying “But I didn’t inhale.” It’s something I’ve never done halfway.
I’ve gone Muir Glen (fire roasted and whole peeled), Pomi, Cento, Rienzi, Sciafani, Tuttorosso, you name it. But today, I went for it, all the way. I ordered me up a new love, delivered free of charge. 24 new loves, to be exact.
A description from the site: No preservatives. No citric acid. No added water. Just a bit of salt. Not from concentrate. This can is filled with pure, vine-ripened, fresh field-grown tomatoes picked by a cooperative of six farmers in southern New Jersey. Once they’re off the vine, these Jersey Farms Crushed Tomatoes are canned within 24 hours, and a percentage of the sale of each can goes directly back to the hardworking farmers.
How do you say no to that? No, I have zero affiliation. I am not being paid or compensated in any way to share this. I found me a deal and wanted to share. Primizie, the site selling these Jersey jewels, offers free shipping on orders over $50. And, using the coupon code: SOCIAL25, you receive $25 off a purchase of $50. So really, you spend $25 total (I spent $30) and you get free shipping. Also, they have lots of truffles, the chocolate and mushroom kind (the White Truffle Risotto Kit looks Godly). I love the web and all its workings.
* Posting my lasagna, tomato sauce, meatball recipes next (yes, I have a sauce recipe strictly for Jersey tomatoes, not Roma/ San Marzano tomatoes).
