The recipe is based on one from a colleague of mine. His salsa is always a hit in the office.
Tomato Salsa (Spicy)
Yield – 4 pints
5 cups chopped peeled seed tomatoes
1 ½ cups roasted seeded long green chiles
½ cup finely chopped roasted jalapenos seeded and skinned (per taste)
3 chopped roasted Serrano peppers seeded and skinned (per taste)
4 cups chopped onions
1 cup bottled lemon juice
6 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 TBS ground cumin
1 TBS salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
Here are the ingredients
Did you catch whta I forgot to lay out? That's right, the onions.
Roast the peppers till they are charred. Place in a paper bag to steam and further loosen the skins.
While the peppers are charring, bring a pot of water to boil to blanch the tomatoes. Plunge the tomatoes a few at a time until the skins loosen, remove from pot and put in colandar. Repeat until done.
Peel, and seed the tomatoes and peppers. Chop them up. Put all ingredients into a large pot, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Ladle hot salsa into pint jars , leaving 1/2" headspace. Adjust lids and process in a boiling water canner 15 minutes. (at 0-1000 foot altitude). Adjust for your altitude.
After canning stage - allow to rest 5 minutes before removing jars and placing in a dry place. Follow cooling and storage instructions.
We'll see how it is later.
Keep digging and eat well!
