Good Morning.

Sorry I was AWAL this week, I had a horrible sinus infection.  The medical professional that looked up my nose said there were all the colors of the rainbow.  I would like to take that as a compliment but, upon further reflection have decided that is not so good.  I am on antibiotics and have started to feel better, the hubs said I no longer snore like Darth Vader, now that had to be attractive.

My garden of tomatoes is growing like gangbusters, I also have carrots and peppers.  Not much you can do with those three things huh?  I am going for carrotless salsa.

You all know I hate to purchase any thing.  We use lots of salsa through the year and I believe it is something we can make.  The hubs is usually the salsa maker, it turns out good just not hot.  We love hot salsa.  So I decided to try my hand this morning.


I have all this lovely produce that must be used so why not.

I used:

  1. 3 tomatoes
  2. 2 jalapeno peppers
  3. 1 cayenne pepper
  4. 1/4 onion
  5. pinch of salt

It has a kick to it, however; it is too chunky, more like pico de gallo.  I will wait for the hubs to get up and see if we should send it through the food processor.  Oh if only I had an emersion blender.  It is on my wish list for this canning season, just have not made the commitment.

Do you make salsa? Have a recipe to share?

    Another way you can make it super easy it to put all the ingredients from the garden right into a big tray and roast them all together until you house smells like a Mexican restaraunt and it looks good to you. Blender it or food process and can. It ends up more like the picante sauce you buy in the market.
