Today, with our sweet pepper sauce, we are canning some great summer flavors so we can enjoy them during the cold season.

This 100% vegetarian sauce harmoniously combines the tastes of peppers, onions and tomatoes. It is ideal to brighten our winter tables. Chunks of crunchy vegetables remain well below the tooth even after months on the shelf.

This sweet pepper sauce is also perfect for busy people who are short of time but want to eat well. Simply cook the pasta to your taste, open a jar of sauce, heat it and voila. In less than 30 minutes you get a tasty dish of pasta that only need a nice loaf of bread and a good wine.

Brimming with tasty vegetables, this sauce is very easy to prepare and a perfect alternative to the often too salty industrial products available in supermarkets.

This sauce keeps well in the refrigerator for a few days, a few weeks in the freezer, but several months if you take the time to can it. Indeed preserved in this way it retains all its nutritional qualities and taste for at up to 12 months on a shelf.
