Salsa redux...

So I made another big batch of salsa tonight, because I still had a boatload of tomatoes that were going to go bad unless they got used...quickly. I could have given them to people at work, but why, when I could spend hours slaving making salsa?

Why? Because there are now an additional 9 pints that we will be able to give away or use ourselves! And there is no salsa yummier than this. None.

Actually, I had to do it in two nights, because to do it all in a day is too much. So last night I cut up the tomatoes, the onions, the yellow bell peppers and the cilantro.

Tonight, I minced the seven cloves of garlic and three kinds of hot peppers (nine peppers in all), and added the salt, pepper, sugar, vinegar, lemon juice and cumin. It turned out very nicely, and the best part was that out of the canner, it took less than six minutes for the jars to seal. Excellent!

michelle: you'll have to come pick it up, but I'll put a jar aside for ya. :) you'll have to keep it from craig, though, b/c he's a guy and he'll try to eat it all in one sitting. :D
