What? I am canning again...I know shocking.
I just can't seem to help myself. I have caught the canning bug and I just can't seem to stop.
Okay that is not true, there will be stopping soon. I may love the product of canning, but I have about run out of the energy to can.
Plus I am running out of jars.
Before my steam completely ran out we decided to can one more thing.
All thanks to some tomatoes.
See we had a plethora of tomatoes...I know fancy words, right. Yeah, I am all smart and stuff like that. Thanks to my junior year of high school rhetoric.
I am pretty sure plethora is the only vocab word I remember from that course. My poor teacher would be disappointed if he found out. So shhhh, don't tell him.
Anyway, back to my plethora of tomatoes.
With all these tomatoes, I decided it was time I learned to can salsa.
I used THIS recipe An Oregon Cottage.
Not too spicy. Not too mild. Perfect consistency. The ingredients are easy to find.
The salsa comes together super easy. Even, say absolutely hypothetically, if you don't have a food processor and have to chop everything up with a tiny bullet baby food maker in like four batches. Hypothetically of course.
If you too have a plethora of tomatoes...
AND you like some chips and salsa...
Well, then make some salsa. Heck, you don't even have to can this if you don't want to. Just put a lid on it and store it in your fridge. Have it with some chips anytime your little heart desires.
