Spicy ToMAHto Salsa!
A lot of tomatoes do not make a lot of salsa! I am pleased with my batch, though as it was easy to make.
5 pts ripe tomatoes (I blanched them for 3 minutes, submerged in an ice bath, cored, peeled and rough chopped them)
2 green peppers, seeded and chopped
2 onions, chopped
3/4 c tomato paste (can be left out if you like runnier salsa)
1/2 c vinegar
2 T sugar
2 T salt
4 1/2 t garlic powder
1 t cayenne pepper
1/4 c olive oil
squirt of lime juice
In your favorite dutch oven (mine is a red Le Creuset) combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 45 minutes. Pour into freezer containers and cool to room temperature before placing in the freezer.
