More adventures in canning

I picked ten more pounds of tomatoes this week. Watch the magic:

Tomatoes, red onion, jalapenos, dried red pepper, cilantro, garlic. Any guesses?

first step: blanch and peel, of course

after much chopping, mix all that stuff in a pot along with red wine vinegar and some spices

bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes

can it!

enjoy the leftovers immediately!

This recipe for "SpicyTomato Salsa" can be found in The Ball Blue Book of Preserving. It's delicious!

Yummy. Are all the ingredients from your garden??

Terri ... Oh! I meant to say something in my post and forgot. Only the tomatoes are home-grown, unfortunately. But this recipe turned out so well, it has me considering onions, peppers and cilantro for next year's garden!
