Fall is making it presence known little by little in my area of the country. We enjoyed some weather in the 50’s last week and this week is starting off still cool in the 60’s. I love it so much. Fall is the perfect time to get out the slow cooker and enjoy warm meals together as a family. Red Gold wants to help you create those meals by offering delicious recipes that include their wonderful tomato products.
Red Gold has been around since the 1940s growing tomatoes in Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, where true seasons positively impact flavor — with just the right angle of the sun, perfect temperature, and soil that seems made for growing tomatoes. Using tomatoes in soups, stews and casseroles may also offer more nutrition than fresh. When tomatoes are heated, the antioxidant lycopene (linked to several health benefits) is released.
Because of this, Red Gold is offering an awesome “2-a-day Crock-Pot® Giveaway! What does this mean? Every day, from September 17 through October 8, on the Red Gold Facebook page they will be giving 2 of their loyal Red Gold fans a Red Gold branded Crock-Pot. That is 44 Crock-Pots in over 3 weeks! In addition, Red Gold will be sharing some new Crock-Pot recipes.
I wanted to share one of these new recipes here so you could get dinner started right away!
