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.

  1. Terri, your salsa looks soooo good. I made it once and froze it but it was really watering when I thawed it to use. I don't know what I did wrong. My fav dutch oven is a white pot the same as yours.
