I spent today making Salsa. I am loving all of the great stuff that I have been able to make and put up this year thanks to all of the tomatoes that great friends and family have gifted me with. There is just nothing better than going to the cabinet on a cold dreary day and pulling out something that reminds you of sunshine and warmth.
And this is definite warmth!
The Salsa Recipe:
2 onions finely chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups peppers (I used 1 cup of mild and 1 cup of medium and just 1 hot pepper)
1/4 c. chopped cilantro
1 1/2tsp. chili powder
2 TBSP lime juice
I drop my tomatoes in boiling water and then put them in ice water to make them easy to peel. I then squeeze out any excess liquid and throw them in the food processor but you can dice them really fine, then simply combine all of the ingredients together. Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. The next day bring the batch to a boil then put in pint jars. Place your jars in a pan of water and let boil for 20 minutes, this seals the lids. It’s that easy!
My pictures of food never show the true color no matter how hard I try. Especially if it is red. Maybe I need some floodlights in my kitchen or something. I took about 20 pictures just to get this one half way decent. If you make the salsa it will be a bright red. All of my photos look either orange or burgundy.
