Well last night I finally got around to making my first salsa batch of the year! I turned out pretty darn good. I think I may have needed a bit more cumin and maybe more salt, but it always tastes different after it’s processed so I left it as is.
This was the first year that I think I blanched, peeled and cored my tomatoes properly! It made the whole salsa making procedure a whole lot easier. Next time I will have to take pictures. However, I am sure everyone else already knew how to do it..Lol
To make things even easier I also used my food processor to chop up the onions, peppers and garlic. SOOOO EASY!! I then tried to chop the tomatoes in the food processor and didn't like how they turned out. Too mushy for my liking so I processed 20 tomatoes and chopped 25 more by hand. I think it gave it the consistency that I was looking for and it did make it a little easier too. Got to Love that!!
I still would like to make another batch of salsa, but I have cauliflower and crab apples that are demanding they are next in line.
I still need to make a lot of stuff this week and as of last night I am out of jars!
Crab apple Jelly
Crab apple butter
One lucky veggie/fruit will be processed tonight after I get home from the dreaded doctor’s appointment! Last week’s appointment with a different specialist led to him sending a letter to our provincial DMV recommending revoking my licence. Today’s appointment we have been forewarned is bad news...so exciting afternoon ahead...lol Nothing life threatening though....but life altering maybe. Hopefully too altering though!
