I received another shipment from Lock & Lock (www.locknlockplace.com) as part of their Supporter's Program. Each time I get a shipment, I get super excited to see what goodies are in the box. Honestly, it is just like Christmas morning! In the box this month I received one of Lock & Lock's newest products Lock & Lock Airless Container. This product prevents air from reaching your food and deters bacteria growth. So, your treats should stay fresh longer.The container is really genus. Once you have "locked" the container lid on, you press lightly on the center of the lid until your hear a beep. This removes air from inside the container. Then lift the air release valve on the lid to release all of the air. A small hissing sound will let you know that the air is being pushed out. Set the convenient date dial and you are all set. Of course, I had to try it out immediately. So I thought to myself, what would be a good use for this container? The answer, an original recipes for Early Autumn Apple Salsa inspired by a trip this morning to our local Farmer's Market. As I walked the market, my eyes spied some gorgeous Gala apples from a local orchard. I knew I already had some sweet and hot peppers from my Dad's garden, Vidalia onions, cherry tomatoes and a bunch of cilantro. So for me, salsa was the natural choice. My husband and I decided earlier in the day to have a halved turkey breast for dinner since my daughter was coming home from college for the weekend *and* since she is a following a gluten free, dairy and lactose free diet, gravy was definitely not on the menu! Lock & Lock was established in 1978 and has grown into a global commodity. The containers are produced from a new material with no BPA so it safe for humans and the environment. They have a wide range of products including a great range of storage containers, ceramic cookware, storage containers, water and tea bottles and so much more. One of the best things about the company is that they are always participating in sales so anyone can try the product at very reduced costs. They even have happy hour deals twice a day where you can really find some great deals. Lock & Lock has also partnered with some of the online marketers so it does pay to keep your eyes out for deals from KG Deals, Groupon and others. I just posted the recipe on my blog: west757.blogspot.com if you are interested in trying it out.
