Green Tomato Roasted Salsa in January

1/10/2022 – This salsa was made with green tomatoes picked since we began having very cold nights and the tomato plants are freezing. It also has serrano peppers from our garden that were picked last week. 4/23/2022 – Enjoying the second half-pint of this salsa. The four serranos did not make it spicy. It is rather mild and a bit sweet—likely from the roasted tomatoes.

  • four medium yellow onions quartered;
  • half pod of garlic cloves;
  • 4 red serrano peppers from the garden.
