Salsa....and No Not Dancing

Between my dad's and our garden
we have had a bumper crop of
tomatoes and chilies,.
Aren't they pretty?
There is nothing like a homegrown tomato.
The last two weekends
I have been canning like a
"Crazy" woman.
I even have a blister
to show for all my great dicing skills.
And what do I have to show for it?
Between both weekends,
Around 45 pints of homemade salsa.
We like our salsa a little
warm, so I just leave the seeds in
the chilies.  We might have enough
to make a few more.
My hubby can eat a jar of
homemade salsa a week.
Have you been taking advantage of
the end of summer/fall harvests?

On a sewing note,
If you missed the first
few days of the Rush Hour hop,
here is the whole schedule.

  1. I would love the recipe for your salsa, it looks amazing.

  2. Pretty pictures, beautiful salsa and I love your melamine bowl !

  3. So jealous Amy....I love fresh tomatoes. We left your beautiful state this morning and are headed back home to another beautiful state. :) blessings, marlene

  4. That is a lot of salsa but if one whole jar disappears every week then you'll probably have enough to last until next season. Congrats to you on a big job well done.

  5. Yummy. And I agree, a recipe would be super wonderful...

  6. Homemade salsa...nothing better than that! Beautiful tomatoes!

  7. Our canning season is mainly in July/August. By Sept. the tomatoes are pretty much gone unless you've planted a late growing tomato. Your salsa looks delicious.
