I know what you mean. The only veggies I buy in a can are wax beans. I love them ice cold with ranch dressing on them. Then the other is cream style corn for corn chowder. The rest of my veggies I buy are in the fresh produce department or in the frozen food section. It is surprising when you taste a veggie in a can now. Unless you can find salt free, I rinse the wax beans. Way to salty. I love fresh beets. Funny, you can't buy them frozen. Only fresh or canned. If I had my health, I would be out there planting my veggies. Nothing like the taste of a fresh tomato still warm from the sun's rays. That used to be my breakfast on the way to the bus stop going to work. My neighbor planted a big patch of tomatoes and his wife hated them. So he told me to help myself. And I did!
