SALSA!

I grew dem peppers myself!

A couple months ago, I did a blog post about my plan to grow some carrots. Very good. It went well. I was thinking of what to cook with them but when I tasted them I decided just to eat them raw. I got a couple dozen, ate most of them, gave a few to friends. I got a few left growing in Plot 42.

I also grew about a dozen pepper plants and decided to make a fiery salsa today.

Ingredients I grew myself:

3 Jalapeno peppers, 1 1/2green bell peppers, 3 Hungarian wax peppers, 3 Joe’s long Cayenne peppers, 1/2 cup parsley.

From the farmer’s market/ grocery store:

1 cup cilantro, 6 tomatoes, 1 onion, 2 lime (squeezed),1 garlic clove, a pinch of salt, a dash of chili powder.

It turned out well. Hot, but not overwhelming. I’d say it would be more of a “medium” classification than a “hot.” Needs a bit more cilantro than I used. It made 3 1/2 jars:
