Warm Up With Exciting Meals from Your Pantry

Dec 29, 2014 03:41AM ● Published by Family Features

There’s nothing quite like heart-warming comfort food to beat winter’s chill. And there’s no need for a trek to the supermarket or to resort to the takeout menu drawer. Some of the best and most flavorful ingredients are already in your pantry. That’s right…the canned foods in your pantry.

Canned foods not only mean less preparation and year-round availability of your favorite produce, like tomatoes and green beans, they also help make healthy and delicious homemade meals a reality, more often. Like home canning, the canning process locks in foods’ natural goodness and nutrients so they’re available to you any time of year, and all winter long.  

Best of all, canned foods help make the big, bold flavors in dishes like Thai Chicken Curry and Shepherd’s Pie easy and simply delicious – perfect for a chilly day.

For more seasonal recipes and to learn how you and your family can get cooking with canned foods this season and year round, visit www.CansGetYouCooking.com.
