Today I am going to share a recipe I created with you. My family loves salsa and we were given an abundance of tomatoes this week. Combining some of the tomatoes from our porch garden and the ones given to us. We were able to make three quarts of salsa. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
- ¼ cup jalepeno peppers, seeded and diced ( I used jarred peppers)
- 1 lg Vidalia onion, chopped
- 10 cups fresh tomatoes, blanched, peeled and pureed
- 1 bunch of fresh cilantro leaves (approx 2 cups)
- 4 tsp salt
- 2 Tablespoons lime juice
- 3 tsp garlic powder
- 1 can diced Rotel tomatoes with lime juice and cilantro
- Boil large pot of water on stove. Add freshly washed tomatos. Boil until skins on tomatoes begin to split. Remove from heat. Cool. Peel off skins. Place in blender and puree. Seed and dice jalepenos. Dice onion. Place diced vegetables in large bowl. Add tomato puree. (you can chop tomatoes if you prefer a more chunky salsa. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Place in mason jars and store in fridge. (I did not can mine for long-term storage because we eat a lot of salsa when tomatoes are in season).
