Canning Salsa

E and I are learning to can vegetables! It has been such a fun experience! It is not only learning something new that has been so great, but the fellowship (and working together) with friends as well! 

My friend Deana has a garden and she has so graciously shared her bounty with us. We went to our friend Connie's house to do the canning.

We canned salsa using her recipe here.

4 quarts (8 pints) jars chopped tomatoes

3/4 cup jalapeno peppers (either canned or fresh)
1 cup white vinegar
8 ounces canned green chili peppers
1 Tablespoon salt
1 cup chopped green onions (with tops)

We added cilantro this time and it was delicious!

Pulse in food processor being careful not to over do it!

I can't wait to share what else we have been up too!!!!

The salsa looks good. What a blessing and there is nothing like spending time with friends and of course E. A memory/lesson she will never forget!

Having E in the kitchen has been like having another lady working by our side! She has worked sooooo hard this week! The fellowship has been great!
