Fresh Homemade Salsa

There are sooo many other projects I have ready to share with you, but when a family member asks for a recipe...

I must make sure it gets out on the ole blog. I have had a very prolific garden this year....
Abundance of tomatoes and jalapenos
Then it's SALSA time!!

We had some of hubby's family in this past weekend and I made another batch of Fresh Homemade Salsa. It's so good and easy!! YUM!!

You can can also use canned jalapeños. They are super easy to can... 

Canning Jalapenos
I told you it was pretty easy!

I usually ask hubs to be the guinea pig to see if it needs a little more of something. It's really your own preference. I like lots of cilantro, but you might not care for it. You might like it hotter, then add more jalapeños or chili powder. It's very easy to adjust to however you like it.
