Top Value Brands for Conservas
From our June Issue

Sometimes, the main event of dinner is stacked neatly in your pantry. Spend some time finding the right brands and these canned fish, meats and vegetables can take convenience to new heights—nothing like the casseroles of the 1950s that gave cheap canned goods a bad name. Pour the right wine and you’ll make a conserva convert of your most skeptical friend.
