For the past week Lew and I have been trying to make our second batch of salsa for the summer. It takes forever to get something done when you have two 6 month old babies rolling around in the floor!
Our salsa process:
-Peeling what felt like 100 tomatoes. We peel the tomatoes by letting them sit in boiling water for a couple minutes then putting them in an ice bath to cool off. Then the skin just falls off.
-I kept all the tomatoes in a zip loc bag in the fridge for a few days while I waited for the time to finish the process.
-Step two: I chopped 4 bell peppers, half an onion, 4 banana peppers, and 2 jalapenos.
-A couple days later I chopped all the tomatoes, combined everything in a pot and started cooking on the stove. We added a little sugar, vinegar, corn starch, Italian Seasoning, and Chili Powder.
-We let it simmer on the stove for a couple of hours. Then put it all in the fridge for a couple days while we were out of town.
-Finally, yesterday we pureed the salsa and canned it! It is very yummy!
