Readers, I’ve got a giveaway for you! And you know you can trust my recommendation on this product, because I’ve been blogging for over two years, and this is only my second giveaway. And last year’s giveaway was… the same thing, a Muir Glen canned tomato kit. This is the only product I’ve ever accepted free to review and give away on my blog, because I’m over the moon about these tomatoes.
So now that it’s the dead of winter (in most parts of the U.S. at least), and the only tomatoes available in the supermarket are tasteless and shipped from halfway around the world, it’s time to break out the canned tomatoes. And Muir Glen is the best of the best. As far as I’m concerned, they’re tasty enough to eat right out of the can, but the kit includes mouth-watering recipes, with more delicious recipes online. How does chickpea and tomato curry, carmelized onion-tomato focaccia, or fire roasted tomato-basil crab bisque sound?
These organic tomatoes are picked at the peak of freshness and canned immediately for the best taste possible. They’re healthy and delicious, so you can feel great about serving them to your family. And I have great news to those of you concerned about BPA lining in tin cans: the company has changed to non-epoxy lined cans. Here’s what a representative told me: “Muir Glen worked for some time with can suppliers to develop and test alternative linings that do not use BPA, and we identified an alternative that has been proven safe and viable in our processing of tomatoes. We transitioned to cans with liners that do not use BPA as we are canned this year’s (2010) tomato harvest.” I’m so happy to hear that, and I know many of you will be as well.
This kit makes a great gift, or order it for yourself to make several quick and delicious winter meals. The kit is only $8 and includes free shipping. Click here to order. But first, enter the giveaway and maybe you’ll be the lucky winner who has a free kit mailed to you.
All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a Comment. It can be a canned tomato recipe or serving tip, or just why you’d like to win. I’ll randomly pick a winner on Friday, January 28th at midnight PST. Good luck!
