The canning and preserving continues in my kitchen. Today is all about tomatoes. I love salsa so I used a mix of tomatoes with fresh cilantro, jalapenos and a white onion.
This was the first time I have blanched tomatoes in a while and it was a lot easier than I remember. I don’t know why I was freaked about it actually. Boil water, dip in ice water and done.
The trick to this was making an X on the tomato and coring out the top a little bit.
Boil about 15-30 seconds.
The skins just came right off — easy.
mmmm … spicy
Viola! A big batch of salsa! I am going to eat some of it right away and put the rest in a big jar for later. Why don’t you bring some chips and join me?
