5 Things Tuesday, 5 Favorite Canned Goods

What a fun, never though of, challenge hosted by Salted Caramel, our 5 favorite canned goods. Some things we know we have to have brand specific but I have found that now that I am in the Midwest, some brands are not available so I do the best I can.

Top of the list is Le Sueur (must be brand specific) Very Young Small Sweet Peas. If I cant have fresh peas from my garden, then this is the only brand where they don’t taste like hard tasteless mush.

The next must have brand is Hunts Tomatoes. I prefer the petite diced but that isn’t a game changer.

I am a big legume eater so my favorite brand is Bush’s. Mostly stick with Black eyes or baked. Loving growing other varieties in my garden.

Coming originally from the south, I am big on the leafy greens but refuse to clean fresh one, so I get canned. Turnip greens are hard to find here but I can get Spinach pretty easily. Popeye’s is the only brand I have found up here and it will do.

And to sweeten the list lets add my favorite fruit. Libby’s Bartlett Pears. Served on a slice of lettuce, topped with HELMANN’S mayonnaise and shredded cheese.

Its been fun to think about can goods that have become a staple for our kitchen.

And as always I close with my usual reminder that in all you do, remember to be kind. You may be at that specific moment, the only kind act someone has seen that day. Enjoy and think about this profound statement.

Always be kind.
