Another Homemade Salsa Recipe!
We will be getting our first frost soon. My daughter in law just called and said "Help! What do I do with these bags of green tomatoes, peppers and onions? How do I make salsa?!"
I figured that many others are in the same boat too. After telling her to save me some tomatoes so I can cook fried green tomatoes, I gave her my favorite salsa recipe from our Dining on a Dime cookbook. There are two homemade salsa recipes in Dining on a Dime and this one is my favorite. The brown sugar seems to bring out the flavors of the veggies so well.
Homemade Salsa #2
4 large ripe tomatoes
3 cans (6 oz) tomato paste
4 large green tomatoes, skinned
1 1/2 cups vinegar
1 large green pepper, chopped
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 onions, chopped
12 jalapeño peppers, seeded, chopped.For extra hot, leave in seeds
4 tsp. garlic powder or 6-8 cloves of garlic, chopped
Process all ingredients in a food processor. Place in a large Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Can. If your family eats a lot of salsa there is no need to can it. Just refrigerate. Makes 6 pints.
