REVIEW + COMPETITION: Aleyna 'Sun Kissed' Range

I was delighted to review some of the new Aleyna 'Sun Kissed' range to review. This is what I thought...

Aleyna Sun Kissed Tomatoes
I loved these - before I say anything else, I have to say that... They are SO delicious. They are sun ripened and slow roasted tomatoes - they are deliciously sweet and succulent and very flavoursome and juicy. I ate some straight out of the jar and they really are supremely delicious. My husband tried them too and really enjoyed them.

Aleyna Sun Kissed Peppers
In general, I wouldn't eat peppers on their own - I can only generally tolerate them as an ingredient in different foods, so I was pleasantly surprised when tasting these as I thought they were very nice. Although I preferred the tomatoes in the range, I very much liked these peppers too. Again, they are slow roasted and are very soft, succulent and tasty. They also have a touch of oregano and garlic which just intensifies their delicious taste. As with the tomatoes, I tasted these peppers straight out of the jar too. My husband really enjoyed these and I had to take them away from him quickly to stop him eating the whole jar!
They have kindly given me some extras to offer to you, my readers. Details of the competition are below...

    These sound lovely and I think they'd be nice mixed through pasta with some olives, sliced mushrooms, bacon (or chicken, tuna, salmon, ham - it's very versatile this!) and pesto. Sprinkle some parmesan on top - delicious!

  4. following your blog with gfc :)

  10. I think these would be lovely toppings for bruschetta with some tapanade or artichoke puree underneath and perhaps with a little mozzerella cheese on top

  11. Following, think these would be fantastic addition to rice really mix in well @andrewcbo

  12. the tomatoes would be nice chopped finely and sprinkled on bruschetta. They'd both be nice on pizza or in a pasta or chilli dish. Loads of uses! Thanks, I've followed on GFC

  13. Tweeting @original_castir and following on twitter and blog

    I'd chop them,and add to pasta dishes,if they lasted that long,as I may just eat them,before any recipes/cooking gets in the way

  14. Already following you on GFC

    I would use them in a chilled potato salad. That will be nice.


  15. I'm following with GFC as M.
    I'd try these popped & chopped onto pizza.
    I've tweeted. @maisietoo

  16. I'm following with GFC

    I'd toss these into a pasta dish for a delicious kick!

    I've also tweeted. @angiehoggett

  17. Never tried before, but would make a italian style souce.
    Following and tweeted

  18. Never tried it before but i would use it on a pizza (my guilty pleasure lol)

  19. following your blog via google friends connect. I have tried the peppers but not the tomatoes. I use the peppers just as they are in salads (yum!)but also like to chop them and add them to home made soups. I would use the tomatoes in a home made veggie & gluten free lasagna. I ususally use passata to give a nice tomatoey flavour so these would be a nice change and a chance to experiment! @susanwillshee

  20. have also tweeted your message @susanwillshee

  21. I follow your blob thru GFC.And i tweeted your post @sandigled.

    I would make bruschetta with the tomato`s and pepper`s they sound ideal.
    I have not tried them but i am going to look out for them now.
