Awesome Local Salsa and Pasta Sauce

How lucky was I to be in Whole Foods the other day when Steve from Poblano Farm was there demonstrating his salsa! I learned that Poblano Farm is a local sustainable tomato and pepper farm here in Rhode Island. The salsas tasted so good and fresh, I bought both flavors, Roasted Salsa and Mild Salsa. While shopping I found their pasta sauce and grabbed a jar of that also.


Both the salsa and pasta sauces are thick and wonderfully fresh tasting. The tomato flavor is amazing . . . not over processed, and this Providence Journal article explains why, http://www.golocalprov.com/food/grow-local-poblano-farms-salsa/

This is the mild salsa and I really love the consistency and fresh tomato flavor with guajillo peppers.


The Roasted Salsa is also delicious with poblano and jalapeno peppers and has that amazing fresh tomato flavor.

I usually make my own sauce, but what a treat having a great jarred sauce that's made locally on hand for a busy weeknight.


Poblano Farm also sells a Chipotle Salsa. We'll be trying that next!
