I decided to try one of Irene’s delicious recipes. Irene’s blog is My Slice of Mexico. The recipe I chose to make is Salsa Mexicana Cocida. I had about a dozen ripened and ripening tomatoes from the two plants that are off-the-charts prolific with large flavorful fruit. (The other plants I started from seed from the seed bank have yet to see a red one.) Unless I wanted to haul all of the canning equipment in from the garage, I had to make something from them.
For anyone who likes tomatoes, this photo is probably making you drool:
A close-up of these GORGEOUS luscious beauties. As you can see they aren’t crammed full of seeds either. The flavor is SO much better than anything you can find at the grocery store (except organic ones).
This is the salsa, hot off of the stovetop.
It has since cooled off and I ate some warm salsa with tortilla chips. This salsa is delicious and so easy to make. Thank you, Irene, for this and your many other recipes!
