Homemade Salsa

My Garden is BLOOMING!!!! I feel like I am picking vegetables daily!

This Monday I went out to the garden and I had 8 or so BIG RED TOMATOES ready for picking! (Even after giving 8 or so away on Saturday) I have tried to come up with ways to use them but they were too big. I already have made stewed tomatoes, marinara sauce, and even tomato sauce. This time I wanted something new - why not SALSA!!!!

This recipe made 2 large jars and 3 small jars and a little jar for the fridge!!! :)

The Ingredients:
10 tomatoes peeled and chopped
2 green bell peppers
2 red bell peppers
1 large chopped onions
5 cloves garlic
2 yellow banana pepper or 1 chopped jalapenos
1/4 cup sugar
1 cups vinegar
5 teaspoons pickling salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 large cans tomato paste

The Directions
Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Then let Simmer 1 1/2 hr, stirring often, at the end of cooking time add 1/2 bunch of cilantro if desired.
Jar and process, 35 minutes for pint jars and 45 minutes for quart jars.
