Simple Salsa

Ok, I never could not make up my mind on a recipe,
and I am  still unsure about the jarring thing.
 For some reason the hot water bath and sterilization kinda freak me out.  


 After some thought  REAL  REASON:  if I do not jar it right,  my salsa would kill my family this winter when they eat it. I know crazy.

So I just made my own recipe, I added a little of this and that
 till I liked the taste.
Camo Man and I rode around and gave jars of salsa to family and friends.
 I let them know that it had not been preserved and they
 need to enjoy it within a few days.

I made a semi homemade pizza using a few fresh Roma tomatoes.

And as you can see on the kitchen window sill our
tomato days are not over yet.

Here is a basic recipe for salsa that I have had for years, it is really good.

Simple Salsa
4 cans stewed tomatoes (I prefer Delmonte)
1 sm. can diced green chillies
Jalapenos to taste
1  tomato (diced to how chunky you like your salsa)
1 onion (diced)
1/2 bunch cilantro (I use a little less, because I rather more Jalapenos)
Mix all ingredients together and ENJOY!

Yum! There is nothing better than fresh salsa in the summer. We eat gallons of it. I know your friends and family will love it and start begging you for more! I'm wanting to make a peach salsa but I can't seem to find any good peaches. Love your pictures....and think I'm having pizza for dinner.

I'm with you on the canning deal, it freaks me out a bit! My mom canned and I loved her apricots and peaches. She said it's not a big deal, that you can see that the jar is sealed. I remember the pop, pop, pop as all the cans were sealing. But I am still leary like yourself. Someday I AM going to do it though! Hey...Your salsa looks amazing!

Your salsa looks delicious. Thanks for including the recipe. I like experimenting with the ingredients too. Usually this takes place in August, when the tomatoes get ripe up North where I live.
