My last batch of salsa turned out to be the best I've made, and thanks to my son-in-law, who kept track for me, I have the measurements. Hope you like it as much as we did!
CONNIE’S FRESH TOMATO SALSA
6 cups tomatoes, chopped, seeds and pulp removed
6 diced jalapeno peppers, with or without seeds and membrane
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced green pepper
2 tbls minced garlic
2 tbls red wine vinegar
˝ cup sugar
2 tbls salt
1 tbl chili powder
1 tbl cumin
handful chopped fresh basil or cilantro, or 1 tbl dried oregano
Mix all together. Taste and adjust seasoning. Pour into clean jars and refrigerate. Tastes best after it stands overnight. Will keep for at least a week, if it lasts that long.
*Note: Most of the heat from the jalapenos is in the seeds and membrane, so if you like it hot, leave them in. For a milder salsa, remove them.
