I sigh… sometimes it seems endless, this picking up and putting away. Bits and pieces of Sunday are still dotting the front hall; a beaded purse, aqua knit cap, one boys dress shoe. It’s Tuesday night and all should be peace and order, but it’s not. Pieces left over from days previous linger everywhere and big tasks loom ahead. Tomatoes – a big steel bowl full and another tray waiting to ripen for one more day.
Then canning this second batch. Imagine, me canning, who would have thought?! It turned out great though.. the salsa. Mild, yet a complicated flavor the husband said. So the front hall gets ignored for the bigger endeavor to occur and it’s alright in the end as I peek into my pantry cabinet and see the orderly rows of salsa.
I got the recipe for the salsa from : http://www.lifeingraceblog.com/2012/08/how-to-make-salsa-for-canning/
The only changes I made were, half the chili powder, half the pepper and 2 instead of 3 jalapeno peppers. I wanted my kids to eat it 😉 It ended up mild, with a little bite in the aftertaste.
