My garden is coming at me faster than I can find ways to use it, but am I ever having fun and enjoying new things.  Today was my first ever attempt at homemade salsa. Everything in it came from my garden and was it ever AWESOME.  My wife and I agreed that it was the best salsa we have ever had and believe me we have had plenty. The nice part of making your own is that you can get it as spicy or as little as you want. We both like it on the mild side and this was perfect. Now if I can just remember what all I put in it. Shocked 

Picture is a little washed and not the best quality, but I just had to share.

Canning salsa is pretty easy and you only have to waterbath it. There are some good back threads about canning to peruse. Wink Nothing quite like opening a jar of Summer in January. I love you

First try at homemade salsa Empty Nice job Bob

Post  Windmere on 7/4/2013, 5:06 pm

Hi Bob,

Wow!  You salsa look delicious.  I'm hoping I can do something like that with produce from my garden.  With about fifteen plants, I'm hoping at least one of them will produce a ripe tomato (have a lot of green ones right now).

Keep us posted on all the delicacies you make from produce in your garden!

This is a trick I try to get each year, all ingredients to come in from the garden at the same time....... it a tough game.

Well..... after watching many Youtube vids on canning, as well as the encouragement (push lol) by camp, I went to Wally World today and got all the necessary equipment to get me started on the subject.  This should be an interesting adventure, but if I am going to go to all the trouble growing these fresh delicious veggies, then it is only fitting to properly store them for winter in the best possible manner.

Hey LM.... wanna trade a bushel on tomatoes for one of your llamas, I could use the beans Twisted Evil lol!

NICE! Bnoles, did you happen to pick up a copy of the Ball Blue Book? If not, it's a must. When canning salsa, don't forget to add bottled lemon juice 1 Tbsp per pint, 2 Tbsp per quart.

bnoles, that salsa looks wonderful!  I had garden-grown-and-canned salsa at my husband's Uncle's house once and it was the best salsa I'd ever had.  Same story: they couldn't tell me how they'd made it and said it turns out different every year.  

I'm really enjoying seeing your posts with all the yummy dishes you are making using all the fresh veggies you are growing yourself.  Congratulations on this newest venture into the world of canning and preserving.  Keep us posted on how it all goes!

By you posting the pictures, we get to celebrate with you and it encourages us to do what you have done. A friend of mine puts tomatoes in a ziplock, closes it and hits it with her hand and pops the bags into the freezer. She does this when she doesn't have the time to can all of her tomatoes. I think you can use the frozen tomatoes to make salsa in the winter, just thaw them some and cut them up. It would be worth a try. Now if I can remember this in the winter I will try it myself.

Your salsa looks like it is fresh and tasty. First try at homemade salsa 1280598131
 
When short on time, I combine 1 cup of salsa (whatever your favorite type & hottness rating is) with 1-2 tablespoons of cottage cheese (again pick your favorite kind). This goes well with corn, potato, or tortilla chips... or even tacos, burritos, etc

I tend to go with cheap salsa walmart generic brand [great value] and borden cottage cheese. I once read Borden milk comes from artificial growth hormone-free cows.
