You Have To Try These - Così Com’è Jarred Tomatoes

In the case of Così Com’è, an Italian translation is the best way to understand this perfectly picked tomato. Datterini tomatoes are named for dates because of both their shape and sweetness. And the translation of Così Com’è simply means "just as it is." These tomatoes are picked and hand-harvested at the peak of ripeness and packed in glass jars, preserving all the flavor and freshness of the tomatoes without added sugars or preservatives.
