Re: Salsa Recipe
I started last year making salsa....
I did not and will not follow a recipe....
You might be better off doing the same, you can make it to your taste, not someone elses recipe!
All I do was take all different kinds of tomatoes and boil them till they were nice and soft, then ran them thru a wire strainer so I removed the skins and seeds....I then take big boy tomatoes and par boil them to remove skin and chunk them up and add to the tomatoe juice so I have chunks of tomatoes, then I used that juice/tomatoe mix and cut up green peppers, sweet bananna peppers, hot peppers(start out with just 1), onions and garlic and mixed those into the tomatoe juice then start cooking them and add salt and pepper to taste...every once in awhile, while the salsa is cooking, I taste it, add what I feel needs added, if it was not hot enough, I add another diced up hot peppers, if not enough onion flavor, dice up another onion and add it, not enough green and sweet peppers, add more, Ect....
Then, after it tastes just right, I let it simmer at a low temp till it gets Thick, then ladle into canning jars and put the lids on and boil those for maybe 10 minutes and then let cool to seal....many people like the taste of what I make....last year I had a guy who after tasting the first batch wanted 2-1 gallon jars of it...he paid me $50.00 for each jar!
All that I used came straight out of the garden!
Salsa isn't hard to make, all you have to do is cook it and add what YOU like in it and cook it till it is as thick as you like it!
