Canning Tomatoes: Roasted Salsa



My visit to my parents house this past weekend, produced a harvest of over 30lbs of tomatoes. I've been super busy lately (mostly working on a huge redesign of this blog which I hope to be launching in the next month!! More on this later) and I'm really short on time lately. I like salsa, but I don't have time to chop the ingredients for one batch, let alone 30 lbs worth. What to do? Don't worry I have a solution.

Check out this Instructable to see my time saving salsa recipe along with tons of canning tips. Also, check out the comments for links to tons of online resources for canning methods.


Canning Tomatoes: Roasted Salsa - More DIY How To Projects

Ok, here's my cliffnotes for you lazy bones: My shortcut to hours of chopping and slicing is to roast all the ingredients together until they are nice and soft, then blend it in a food processor. And you're done! Beside being a shortcut, the roasting also helps bring out the natural sweetness of the flavors which makes for a delicious salsa! I can get it taken care of this afternoon and and I'll can it this weekend to preserve it.
