Let's Salsa!

I am becoming more domesticated. It a painful challenging process, but change usually is.
Meet my salsa coach good friend Charlene.
She is the amazing lady who helped me turn these (and a few other key ingredients)...
Into this

and then 20 of these little darlings.

Here's the recipe!
Charlene's Salsa
5lb tomatoes
2 Spanish onions
2 grn pepper
1 red pepper
4 jalapeƱo pepper
1   5 1/2 oz can tomato paste
1 cup vinegar
1/4 cup br. sugar
2 tsp pickling salt
2 tsp paprika
3 cloves garlic
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp hot chili powder

chop up veggies add spices and cook for 1 hr.(I do much less time if I drain off some liquid first) pour into hot jars and can for 10 min.

*I like to chop the tomatoes, peppers and onions in my blender, then drain some of the liquid otherwise I find it is too runny.  You don’t need to peel the tomatoes if you put them into the blender.

Linking up with Jen at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam for Tasty Tuesday!
