I should get the first one in a few days it just started to turn red Saturday.

Salsa recipes?

I will of course slice many a top sandwiches and many just quartered. Any other suggestions? I might freeze some but I'm not going to can.

I will try to remember to look mine up when I get home.  It's a Frugal Gourmet recipe I got years ago watching the show on PBS.

Yeah, he was an awesome cook and this is a great salsa recipe.  I just have to remind myself to find it in my recipe box.

tomatoes
white onions
jalapenos
salt
pepper
cilantro
lime juice
garlic


chop all kinda small, add the lime juice and there you have some pico

refrigerate for a bit to set and meld the flavors and yummies



if you hit puree, as chunky or smooth as you like, you have salsa.
can add a small juice can of spicy v-8 to this to if you wish

Jeff Smith's (The Frugal Gourmet) Salsa

Ingredients
4 cups ripe tomatoes, cored, seeded, and diced
5 Jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
2 med yellow onions, peeled and diced
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp minced or crushed garlic
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
Splash of Salsa jalapena (La Victoria)

Instructions
Fresh salsa is surprisingly easy to make and so much better than supermarket sauce. It will keep several days in the refrigerator. Do not cook. Simply mix all ingredients well and add salsa jalapena to taste.

That is the same recipe I use pretty much. Except I use Serrano instead of Jalapenos

I think these days, I would use lime juice instead of the vinegar in the recipe I posted.


What's the real difference between Jalapeno and Serrano peppers?  I'm kinda pepper phobic (they don't like me) and I can't do any of the green/red/orange peppers nor can I do anything like a scotch bonnet.  Is the Serrano similar enough to a Jalapeno that I might be safe trying it?  Is it a little hotter (with or without seeds)?  Or should I just stick with what I know my tummy can handle?

in my experience, serranos are a good deal hotter than jalapenos.

Are they similar in taste, though?  If they're similar but hotter, I may give them a try.

That's too bad.  Bell peppers don't like me.  Guess I'll stick with my tried and true jalapeno.
