I have long had a love affair with tomatoes and tomato-ish creations. But the more I maintain a clean palate, the more I despise canned foods of any kind.
Tomatoes are especially offensive, as their high level of acidity causes a metallic taste in your mouth that — once you notice it — you can never again ignore.
That’s why when I stumbled upon these organic whole peeled tomatoes in a jar, I got giddy with anticipation.
Well joy of joys, these little delights delivered.
Not only were they mild and smooth, they devilishly retained their bright, sweet tomato flavor. Keep in mind I once had 19 tomato plants growing in my garden… To me, the idea of a tomato out of anything other than a basket is somewhat criminal. But as we are currently garden-less, growing and ‘canning’ tomatoes in jars is not an option.
After tasting these organic tomatoes my only regret was purchasing one jar instead of three. To complicate the situation further, I found them at one of those big-box clearance stores — the least likely place to discover such a treasure.
However, I did pull the information from the label so track them down if you share the same love affair for tomatoes as I. After all, their health benefits are numerous.
