Remember this post? I promised I'd share the finished product, and here it is!

The last weekend in August my friend and I spent hours upon hours in the kitchen, peeling, dicing, de-seeding, chopping, slicing, crying (those onions!). And finally we had enough tomatoes, hot peppers, onions, garlic, and cilantro prepared so we could mix up a giant batch of salsa!

I've got a whole bunch of pints and half-pints here. The plan was to keep some and to share some. I love giving homemade gifts, you know?

But then I tasted it. And Oh. Wow. Yum. Yum, yum, yum! Excuse me here for blowing my own horn, but this is the best salsa I have ever tasted. Honestly. The Best. I was just going to have a taste. And then I ate an entire half-pint. In one sitting. (Good thing I didn't open a pint!).

Umm...but I'm going to share. I promise. My family and friends will get some. At least a little. Cause I'm generous like that.


The recipe is from this book. And if you have any interest in canning, go and make some as soon as possible!
[And in case you do want to make it, I'll share our little secret: we upped the amount of hot peppers, and even included some of the seeds. Hot salsa is dee-licious!]


  1. That looks and sounds lovely...I wish I had a garden of my own so I could do the same!

  2. Looks delicious! I've heard that book is great!

  3. Salsa! Mmmm! It does look fabulous!!
    Great gift idea, I agree.
    As always, I'm really enjoying your blog!!

  4. That looks awesome! I agree, hot salsa is definitely the best!


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and to let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
