Salsa!

PeanutNoodles-3

Today’s post is going to be quick and easy. I’m working my way through a list of gifts to can and give to friends for Christmas, and this is one of the easiest. You take a bunch of ingredients, run them through a food processor, then put ’em in jars and water bath can them quick. So. here we go:

Get a bunch of your favorite salsa ingredients and chop them. I use roma tomatoes, garlic, jalapenos (half roasted), a bell pepper, some onion, dried ancho chiles (though california or other dried chiles work too), a little olive oil, lime juice, and some chili powder for extra heat.
