As a very enthusiastic tomato (and canned tomato) eater, I was thrilled when Julie from Muir Glen offered to send me a limited-edition 2009 Reserve tomato kit.
The prestige and quality of reserve wine, now available in tomato form!
Each 2009 Reserve kit includes:
1. One can each of the Muir Glen Organic Yolo Red diced and Muir Glen Organic Brigade whole peeled tomatoes. The Yolo Red diced and the Brigade whole peeled canned tomatoes were grown specifically for Muir Glen under certified organic practices and hand-harvested in Yolo County, California. These two exclusive varieties of 2009 Reserve tomatoes were picked at the peak of ripeness and packed the same day. Yolo Red Diced Tomatoes are sweeter than most, high in lycopene and allow you to create wonderful bruschettas, salsas and soups. Brigade Whole Peeled Tomatoes are full and plump, have consistent bright red color and are perfect to use in your favorite lasagna, pasta sauce or stew recipes.
2. One can each of the Muir Glen Organic Fire Roasted diced and Adobo Seasoned petite diced tomatoes: the classic favorites!
3. Recipe cards from award-winning chefs and The Diary of a Tomato booklet with 25 delicious tomato recipes
When I received this kit, I was blown away. It is beautifully packaged and would make a fabulous gift. The tomatoes are all delicious and the recipe booklet is inspiring. And, best of all, the kit could easily sell for $30, yet it is only $7. Even more amazing, $3 of each purchase through March 31, 2010 will be donated to worthy causes.
Here is the website to order but hurry, since Reserve 2009 will only last so long!
