The garden is doing pretty well producing tomatoes, especially given our late start on everything and slow developing summer. Not enough to make tomato sauce. Ken suggested salsa so I bought a bunch of peppers at the farmers market and figured out a recipe and well, I took a few photos along the way also.


Peppers at the market


Halved garden tomatoes ready to start the process


Juicy Walla Walla onions


Cooking the tomatoes


These are about ready to be put through the food mill


I roasted the peppers on the grill


There’s the pureed tomato sauce


And there it is quite a bit reduced. I like my salsa on the thick side


Chopped peppers, onions, garlic


Spices – cumin, red sea salt, chile powder, chipotle powder


All mixed together in the pot


The finished product


I added a 1/4 teaspoon citric acid to each jar to boost the acidity


  1. Let’s socialize sometime this winter when we all have more free time.

  2. Gorgeous photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can I share these on my blog please? It looks so yummy!
