{ roasted salsa }

As requested...we have been promising this recipe for awhile. Sorry to those of you who have been patiently waiting for it. This recipe will make about 2 quart sized {canning} jars or about 8 cups of salsa. Surely, you can store this in anything container you would like. We just like to use canning jars, for freshness and saving space in the refrigerator. Anyways..we will just cut to the chase on this one, go ahead...roast those veggies. Make your salsa! Enjoy!
  • 12 roma tomatoes
  • 3-4 anaheim peppers
  • 2 jalapeno peppers {1 for less heat}
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup braggs cider vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Core and cut tomatoes in half. On large baking sheet covered in foil, arrange tomatoes cut side down, peppers, quartered onion, & garlic cloves.

2. Roast for a total of 40 min., removing garlic after 15 minutes and turning the peppers once--halfway through. When finished the skin of tomatoes and peppers should be blistered and partially blackened. {like the picture above}

3. Remove pan from over, and cover for 15 minutes--with another baking sheet; steaming the veggies will make peeling skin easier.

4. Remove tomato skins. Remove skin, stems from peppers, and scrape the seeds out with the side of a fork--or just leave them in like we do. Just beware, your salsa will turn out a little more on the spicier side.

5. Place all ingredients in food processor and chop to desired consistency. If any juices remain in roasting pan, you can add those to thin out if needed, too. Put salsa in fridge for at least 3-4 hours before eating; best if made the day before. Will keep for up to 2 weeks in fridge when full amount of vinegar is used.
