Colourful canopies of leaves
Wearing cosy sweaters outside
Re-exploring what feels like new surroundings
Stacking wood to keep cosy
Playing in the cool crisp air
With smells of earth and leaves
and Enjoying what the harvest has turned out
and turning it into creations such as
This is the recipe I use every time I have a big batch of tomatoes.
8 cups peeled chopped tomatoes
4 cups chopped peppers
4 cups chopped onions
2 cups vinegar
1 or 2 finely chopped jalapeno peppers
8 cloves garlic, minced
5.5 oz. tin tomato paste
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 TB. salt
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. oregano
Put it all in the pot and bring to a boil over med.-high heat. Lower heat and simmer for at least an hour. Although I did for about half the day because I like a thicker salsa.
For storing, I like keeping it simple, so I just freeze batches in plastic containers.
