    Must be season for tomato peach, fig, zuccinni and any other fruits and veggies. Just made a batch for a party tomorrow.

    Salsa, Pico de Gallo, Ricard Fl

    6-8 Whole Tomatoes
    1 Medium Red Onion
    1 Bunch Cilantro, Fresh
    1 Can Green Chilis, Diced, Ortegas/El Paso or similiar
    1-2 Whole Jalapenos, Fresh
    1 Whole Juice, Fresh Lime
    2 Ozs. Wine Vinegar
    1 Dash Cayenne Pepper
    Fresh Ground Pepper, To Taste
    1/2 Oz. Cuervo Gold, Tequila, To Taste, Optional
    2-4 Ozs. Chili Rings, Yellow, Hot, Diced, Optional

    1 Take tomatoes and cut in half against the stem, remove the seeds and any juices, discard seeds and juices. Dice in 1/4 inch pieces, sprinkle with a little salt and let set for 30 minutes to remove more juices. Prior to doing this if you desire lightly roast the whole tomatoe to remove the skin, gas burner or grill is best, then do the some thing but keep some of the burnt skin for flavor and texture.
    2 Finely dice red onion, jalapenos, chop cilantro, leaves only.
    3 Mix all ingredients, best the next day. Will keep refrigerated about a week if not eaten first This is the way we like it but play around for your taste buds, there are choices for each palate.

    Yield: Variable

    The charred tomatoes and peppers really enhance the flavaor.
  • lowercasebilllowercasebill Posts: 5,218

  • BamaFan: I did not use a recipe just went in the garden and used what I had. I am sure everyone would love a good salsa recipe!

    Richard Fl : I will have a second batch of tomatoes coming in SOON! I will give it a try! THANKS!

    Beli: The yellow things are tomatoes, my pepper plants were hugh not many peppers :angry:

    Eggtucky: I have a chicken on tonight but I have done a small 4 pound butt and did not have to add any lump, just filler up to the top!

    bill: the table is hard to more! these came from tractor supply, the ones before rolled well but were not sturdy

    Looks like you have been busy. Is your salsa fresh or do you cook it? I plant a salsa garden every year. We made our first batch last week, we made 19 pints. I have a pretty good salsa recipe if anyone would be interested.

    Please share!

    The salsa(s) look great. My garden was a bit of a failure this year, but I just finished a batch this weekend. I take tomatoes, peppers (red, green & hot) vidalia onion, corn & garlic and smoke them all on my egg. I only cook the garlic & corn until tender, the rest I cook until the skins are charred & ready to peel. Once cooked and peel and I put them in my Cuisenart with paprika, cumin, salt, fresh pepper, a small can of pineapple and a splash of red wine vinegar. Once that's all incorporated I add the corn, and a can of black beans. It's been a hit with friends and family, and I know I really enjoy it. To make it hotter and smokier, I'll get a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and put it in the processor and then spoon the salsa on top and mix. It's excellent for those who like heat!
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,482
    WOW, you are fast, & may I add that stuff looks good enough to drink :P
  • I like the HEAT!! This is my best garden in years due to the deer fence! ;)

    Holy moly - that's what I call a VAT of salsa. Looks fantastic, great color!
  • We love salsa w/ corn and black beans. I don't think I could ever make it like you do. We've found some good ones. Most recently Spring Valley from Eagle River, WI. We brought back 2 jars from parents weekend visiting our son at camp. Had 2 couples over Sat night. Opened one jar and it was gone in about 20 minutes. Desert Pepper Co. makes another good one for us simpletons.

    Here it is. This should make about 6 pints.

    8 cups tomato
    4 cups of peppers( 4 bells, 12 hallapino)
    you can sub others I have been using yellow banna peppers and others as well.
    1 cup vinigar
    1 tsp salt
    2 cloves garlic
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 onion
    1 small can spicy v-8
    1 small can tomato paste

    Blanch tomato and remove skin, cut into small pieces(the wifes job). Chop all peppers and onion( my job). Put all ingredients in a large pot and cook for about 1 1/2hour, stirring so it doesnt stick on the bottom. We can the salsa while it is still hot.
  • EggliciousEgglicious Posts: 150
    You can vary the peppers depending on how hot you like it. I like to add some habbenaros once in a while. But be carefull. LOL
  • GunnarGunnar Posts: 2,174
    I've always wanted to make salsa, but I don't can. (I'm considering looking into it after several posts I've seen)If I cut the quantity to a third of your recipe; what sort of shelf life will it have in the fridge. Not that it will last too long.....

    Egg-on-Medford do you put salsa on your Tombstone pizza?
  • EggliciousEgglicious Posts: 150
    I am not sure it doesnt last long once we open a jar and it hits the fridge. I often will eat a whole jar wathcing a ball game. The recipe I gave you only makes about 6 pints. Go buy 6 jars and seals. After it cooks pour it into the jars while it is hot and seal them up. Turn the jars upside down to cool and you are good to go.
