So, I am in the process of jotting down the notes of the failures and successes of my summer garden. In the mean time, while we wait for me to make a post of those, I’d like to tell you about the tomatoes…There wasn’t any time to wait for them to ripen on the vine, so I picked them, put them in a paper bag, and hoped they’d ripen on their own. And that they did!!! As they started to turn, I would take them out of the bag and put them in the windowsill. And once they were really red, I’d put them in a bowl to gather a few for salsa.
Here’s my salsa recipe:
lots of tomatoes
some basil, and a peppermint leaf
lots of garlic
a little bit of onion
1/2 bushel trimmed cilantro
a few pinches of kosher salt
a jalapeno – 1/2 if you don’t like it too spicy, 1/4 if you like it milder
squirt of lemon
blend in a food processor. It gets a bit frothy, but yummmmmmmmmmm it’s delicio!!!
I put into containers and freeze for the winter!!! Lots of fresh salsa is really, really, really good for you!
