Mary’s Roasted Tomato Salsa 2 Ways

1/5/2022 – This prep followed the one on but was preserved in two ways. One batch for current use and one put up by way of a boiling water bath. Note the date is January and they were made with fresh tomatoes and fresh peppers from our fall garden. The batch for current use was great even before it cooled off completely.

Ingredients and the Process for the salsa for current use.

  1. Cleaned and put on a 1/2 baking sheet pan that was full:
    1. Tomatoes, Better Boys, from the garden
    2. Onions – 3 small yellow ones cut into quarters and arranged among to tomatoes
    3. Garlic – An average pod
    4. Hot Peppers – 3 small jalapenos and 2 serranos stemmed and arranged amoung the other items
  2. Drizzled olive oil over it and sprinkled on salt and pepper
  3. Roasted under the broiler set on high until there was some blackened tops
  4. What filled the sheet also filled the food processor up to the top of the blade’s housing.
  5. Added:
    1. 1 tsp of cumin
    2. the juice of a lime
    3. double handful of cilantro, stemmed.
  6. Pulsed to “a little chunky” consistency.
  7. Made a little more than 5 pints.
