Salsa

Last week when we arrived at the farm to pick up our CSA share, just after experiencing our first earthquake, our farmer asked me if I wanted more tomatoes. I said I did but not that day. I could immediately tell by the look on her face that she had already set some aside for me so I quickly added unless you have some ready. Of course they did.

I had hit the wall when it came to tomato canning and needed a break but our farmer told me that she thought it was the last really good tomato week so I took them anyway. And they sat in my kitchen, and they started to ooze, and then they started to smell. Sunday I was going to deal with them but it was the urchins’ last day of summer before school so we played outside instead. Monday morning though I went through those tomatoes, pitched a whole bunch, and cut up the good ones for salsa.

Peach Salsa

When I returned the empty half-bushel box with the apricots I heard myself say that if they filled it up with peaches I’d take it back. Why did I do that? He said to give them a few minutes so as I walked away I thought, I guess I’m making salsa this week!

Peach Salsa

Same as last year except we made a double batch and canned it in pints. Eight ounces just got used up too fast.
