I can be confident in their freshness because Del Monte canned fruits, vegetables, and tomatoes contain the same essential nutrients as fresh varieties and are grown in the best growing regions of the United States, providing consumers with a consistently quality product. The majority of Del Monte products are picked at the peak of ripeness and canned on the same day, to ensure nutrients and flavor are locked in – something I consider very important.
Right now Del Monte has a great contest going on for us home cooks – “Add Some Garden” Facebook Contest:
- Visit the Del Monte Facebook page from November 5th through February 4th to enter the Del Monte “Add Some Garden” contest for the chance to win one of the many prizes available, including kitchen appliances, and $25 or $500 gift cards to Williams Sonoma
- There will be five phases during the contest in which Del Monte will feature a different canned variety every two weeks
- Green beans (November 5- November 18)
- Corn (November 19- December 2)
- Tomatoes (December 3- December 16)
- Peaches (January 7- January 20)
- Pears (January 21- February 3)
- Fans will have five days during each phase to submit their best tips, and consumers will be able to vote for their favorite tip during the second week of each phase
- The five winning tips for each phase will then go head-to-head for a chance to win a Grand Prize culinary travel adventure, valued at $10,000, which will be announced February 15th
I’m brainstorming on what recipes I’m going to create specifically with the Del Monte products – share your recipes and photos for the chance to be featured on the Del Monte Facebook page. How cool would that be?
