Truly Tomato! Review

The Way Nature Intended

Dei Fratelli's Truly Tomato! is the first chopped tomatoes grown & packaged in the United States and available in shelf stable, environmentally friendly cartons. 
The cartons are completely recyclable, BPA free, and preserve the fresh flavors nature provides.
Truly Tomato! also offers tomato and veggie juice that are not from concentrate, just the way nature intended!
For this review I was provided Truly Tomato's finely chopped, petite cut, and rustic cut varieties. You can shop all their great products here!
I made a homemade tomato sauce with the finely chopped tomatoes, which is simmered with carrots, celery and onion, making it a perfect base for a sauce. I then added in the rustic cut tomatoes, a tbsp of garlic, italian seasoning, black pepper & Redmond Garlic Real Salt! I simmered the sauce for 30 minutes and served with whole wheat linguine. It was so simple & delicious!
What I especially love about Truly Tomato! is the fact that you can meet the farmers on their website! They also explain how their product goes from field to carton, which I find so interesting. I love when company's give you an inside look!

I feel good using Truly Tomato! products because they are filled with real, natural ingredients ~ nothing artificial! The seeds are nonGMO and the family farmers take pride in their natural farming techniques. The farms are in close proximity to Truly Tomato's facility, thus tomatoes are processed within hours of being freshly picked!

I also LOVE that the producers of the Dei Fratelli brand is the Hirzel Canning Company & Farms, a fourth generation, family owned and operated company located in Ohio! I love supporting small, family owned companies.

Truly Tomato! explains what is so special about their sustainable packaging…
Our carton allows us to use a more delicate process, thus preserving the natural, fresh-tasting flavor that nature provides. It also allows us all to live a little smarter through eco-friendly packaging.
Environmentally Friendly Packaging:
Comprised of 75% Paper Board - a 100% renewable resource
FSC certified — a global organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management
Provides our consumers with more opportunities to live consciously by reducing fossil fuels… and their own carbon footprint!

Truly Tomato! offers tomato products just the way nature intended! 
I am impressed with their commitment to delivering natural, fresh tomatoes to customers in revolutionary ecofriendly packaging. I would highly recommend Truly Tomato! to any home chef looking to enhance their cooking. Truly Tomato makes it easy to prepare homemade sauces, soups, and so much more. They also have a bunch of yummy recipes that you can see here!
