Mooney Farms / Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomatos Review and Giveaway


     Somehow we decide as children that we just don't like some foods for no reason in particular.  My son tells me all the time when I ask him to eat certain foods, "Mommy I don't like that.  I don't need to try it, I know I just don't like it."  We've all been this way at one point and time in our lives.  I have been lucky enough to work in restaurants for most of my adult life which opened me up to a whole new world of foods and cooking.  Tomatoes were one of "those" foods for me.  My mother loved them in every form and I despised them.  That was until I discovered sun dried tomatoes.  I was hesitant to give them a try but I had no choice working where I was working.  It was part of my job and boy am I glad it was.  I fell in love and began to try tomatoes on everything.  To my surprise, they were great.

     Along my most recent Internet search I came across Mooney Farms, a family owned company since 1987.  "Mooney Farms began in 1987 as a family owned kiwi farming operation. Products were sold at the farmer’s markets in Northern California by the family members.   With the addition of sun dried tomatoes, their first sale to Price Club South San Francisco changed everything. The family’s Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil & Herbs sold out in a record 4 hours!"  I was given several AMAZING products to review:  Sun Dried Tomato Bruschetta with Italian Basil, California Sun Dried Tomatoes Julienne Cut with Italian Basil, Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil & Herbs, Sun Dried Tomato Pesto with whole pinenuts, and Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil & Herbs Halves.

     I was so overwhelmed with all the choices, I wasn't even sure where to start!!  So far I have blended the halves and julienne cut with various other ingredients to make a fantastic dip/spread with amazing flavor!  I have also added the halves and julienne cut with Italian basil to my spaghetti sauce recipe for my most recent canning batch.  I obviously tested these before canning but I cannot wait to open a jar for dinner one night after it has had a chance to let even more flavor soak into it!  I have to say these are some of the best sun dried tomatoes I have ever tasted in my life!

  15. I know the both can be frustrating and I suppose I could take one off but I've had a few negative comments towards a few of the companies I've reviewed so I try to make it more of a hassle for those individuals...I'm sorry
