Gramme’s Snaptoit Salsa Recipe
Gramme’s Snaptoit Salsa Recipe
Gramme’s Snaptoit Salsa Recipe is my own concoction with a little punch to it. Today I made my 4th batch of salsa and I have combined a couple of salsa recipes plus used “Mrs. Wages Create Salsa packet” https://www.mrswages.com/recipe/salsa-mix/ I didn’t follow the recipe on the packet I will include the recipe I used. I have been experimenting with the different salsa recipes I have, trying to find the one that has the consistency and flavor I want. You know how you buy certain kinds of salsa in a jar or have one at a restaurant that is just so good, well, that is what I want of my own, so today after tasting the finished product this one receives my approval! Let’s beginning the journey of Salsa making!!
The tomatoes I am using today are a Amish Roma tomato, I like this tomato because it is a very meaty and has lots of flavor. I want you to know the vegetables I am using all came fresh from my garden, that is the best part about this salsa!! The next step is to wash them, whether you grew them yourself or bought them from some where else you need to wash them. Now you are ready for the next step of this great adventure of salsa making! Here are the ingredients I used in this salsa recipe!
Fill a stainless steel larger pot with water a little over half way and put it on the stove to boil. Once it has come to a boil you can place a dozen or so tomatoes in the water (if you aren’t using roma tomatoes and are using bigger tomatoes probably put only 8 in the pot, all depending on the size). Leave them in the boiling water for 45 to 60 seconds, you will see the skins start to wrinkle or even split, remove them quickly and place them in the sink filled with cold water, I always add ice cubes to get it nice and icy cold so it cools off the tomatoes quickly, you don’t want them to keep cooking. You can take time while waiting for them to cool to chop up your onions, green peppers, garlic and jalapeno peppers, or whatever kind you are using for hot peppers, remember the more hot pepper seeds you include the hotter the salsa will be and always remember to wear gloves with handling hot peppers!!
Once you are done with cooling the tomatoes it is time to start to chop them up, some like them diced or just cut to a rough chop, however you would like them will work. Add all the ingredients together in your stainless steel pot except for tomato paste and start them to simmer and let them simmer until your desired thickness.
