How are the plants in your garden doing this summer? Ours are growing like mad, producing lots of tomatoes and tons of jalapenos! What else to do with that combination but make salsa. My favorite salsa is one shared by a friend of ours a few years ago. It's become my go to salsa recipe. If you like a super hot salsa, this probably isn't the one for you. Susie's salsa is only mildly hot with a hint of sweetness.
I first shared Susie's Salsa on my blog in 2009. Last week, I made a big batch but didn't have time to photograph, so I am revisiting my post from 2009.
5 green tomatoes (I used 10 tomatillos), chopped
10 red tomatoes (I used romas), peeled and chopped
4 jalapeno peppers, chopped and seeds removed
2 cubes of beef boullion (I used 2 tablespoons of beef gravy mix)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 medium sweet onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
12 oz. tomato paste
everything, except the tomato paste in a large saucepan. Cook 1/2 hour
over medium heat. Remove from the stove and stir in the tomato paste.
Makes 5 - 6 pints.
I froze this in freezer containers so we can enjoy the fresh taste of salsa when it's snowy and cold outside.
