Salsa remake....

Basic recipe click HERE.  Some ingredients really depend on the flavor of the produce used.

The first time we made this the tomatoes were pretty weak and watery so we ended up using 1 1/2 jars (10-11oz) of Italian tomato paste.  This year we used one 7oz jar and maybe didn't need it.
We did add extra lime juice (2T), salt (2t.), cumin (1t.) and garlic (1/2t.) this year.....we ended up with hotter jalapenos, or using more of them, plus 3 Scottish Bonnets in the pepper mix.  It's much hotter than last year's batch. (Adrienne keeps sneezing!) But still good!

I hope hubby can get used to raw salsa.  He prefers his tomatoes cooked......  
8 1/2 pints in the freezer!
