Today’s project – salsa!
I wish I had hundreds of pounds of tomatoes. There are so many fun tomato products to can.
Today’s salsa is a bit spicy but when we’re adding it to other dishes, like tacos or enchiladas or using it as a dressing on a taco salad, the spicy is good. If we’re just eating it with chips, it’s going to be spicy.
I got 9 pints and one half pint. The photo above was taken before it all went into the canner. It’s all done now, all jars appear to have sealed. I will leave them out til tomorrow, remove the rings, make sure they’re sealed and put them on the shelf. We have been out of homemade salsa for over a year. I didn’t make any last year. If I have enough tomatoes, I’ll make another batch of this because we do use a lot of salsa.
This morning I fixed omelettes for breakfast and was wishing the salsa was already made . . but it wasn’t.
This doesn’t count for today because this was yesterday’s project but freeze dryer finished. Left to right – basil, rosemary and sage. Those jars are vacuum sealed and on the spice/herb shelf!
