Our life is good, not perfect, a work in progress – but good.

Favorite Fall Recipe

Salsa – spicy salsa – yum.  Since we don’t have a vegetable garden anymore, this year I raided a neighbor’s garden and bought other veggies for salsa.  I used to make this every year – no tomato vines – no salsa.  This year I really wanted to bottle salsa again, so here is the recipe and a couple of pictures of during and after the process.  It turned out yummy.
10 cups chopped cored peeled tomatoes

5 cups  chopped seeded green bell peppers

5 cups  chopped onions

2 1/2 cups chopped seeded chili peppers (yellow wax, hot banana, serrano, jalapeno)

1 1/4 cups cider vinegar

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 T sea salt

Chop and mix together.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.  Reduce and heat and boil gently, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.

Ladle hot salsa into hot jars, leaving 1/2″ head space.  Remove air bubbles.  Wipe rim.  Center lid on jar and screw band down until resistance is met, then increase to fingertip-tight.

Place jars in canner, ensuring they are completely covered with water.  Bring to a boil and process jars for 15 minutes from time water boils.  Remove canner lid.  Wait 5 minutes, then remove jars.










Here is the work in progress and the finished product.
