Tinned Beans

At Jim’s Home Fresh, we’ve got a range of tinned beans and lentils to keep you going. We also stock a certified organic line of tinned beans, which are BPA free. Did you know a great alternative to tinned beans and lentils are their dried counterparts? Buying dried legumes can sometimes work out to be better value. They can triple in size when cooked!

Tinned Tomatoes

You can find both regular tinned tomatoes and organic tinned tomatoes, at Jim’s Home Fresh. You’ll save money when you buy in value packs of 2, or a slab of 12. If you already have plenty of pasta, that slab may be a better way to go. And, if you don’t have time to make your own sauce, try one of the ready-made, high-quality sauces we stock. Our Otway Pasta Sauces have been very popular. Speaking of pasta…
