Food Find: Ontario’s Own
Meet our favourite new product line: Ontario’s Own. This small, lovingly prepared range of food is made without preservatives or additives – just fantastic local ingredients. We love knowing where our food comes form so we’re down with Ontario’s Own practice of listing the farmers’ names on each of their jars. So often in Ontario, we think that local produce is something we have to say goodbye to once summer is over – but with this line you can enjoy our province’s delicious fruits and vegetables all year round.
We’ve been loving cooking with these products – whether we’re using their fantastic Tomato Sauce on home made pizza, adding the sweet Pear Puree to muffins or add dried pasta to the Vegetarian Chili to make a quick Chili Mac. You can find Ontario’s Own at all the big grocery stores: Loblaws, Sobey’s, Metro, Wholefoods and Longo’s and many smaller ones like Rowe Farms as well.
Full disclosure: we’ve known Carole-Ann Hayes, the genius behind Ontario’s Own, for many years. We all worked together in the magazine business ages ago. When we heard that Carole-Ann had launched this beautiful line, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. This week we were in Hamilton on CHCH cooking with the Tomato Sauce and the Veggie Chili and then just yesterday we visited The Morning Show on Global, whipping up some holiday soups. You can see those clips here and here. Let us know if you try any of the products!
