Garden Overflowing???? Make Salsa!!!

Is your garden overflowing with tomatoes??

Here is an easy, and tasty Freezer Salsa recipe that I found a year or so ago.  It is a GREAT way to take your garden (over)abundance and put it to good use.  I like it too, because you can easily double, triple, or quadruple it to make a HUGE amount and freeze it.  I never knew you could freeze salsa....you can!  :)

Freezer Salsa (original recipe here)
*4 cups fresh tomatoes, peeled and cubed (or 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes, if you don't have fresh someday)
*1 medium onion, diced fine (or dried minced onion, reconstituted)
*3T. fresh lime juice (or 1 fresh lime, juiced)
*2 cloves garlic, minced
*5 jalapenos or serrano peppers, minced & seeded (I use one large red pepper from the neighbor) :)
*2 - 3 oz. fresh cilantro, washed and chopped (or dried parsley)
*2 tsp. salt
*If using crushed tomatoes, add 1/3 c. water

Place cubed tomatoes in a large saucepan.  Crush the tomatoes.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer until desired consistency (at least 30 minutes).  Keep crushing tomatoes as they are simmering.  Divide into jars or containers.  Freeze salsa, or refrigerate for 24 hours to allow flavors to blend before serving.  (IF you can wait that long!  I eat it warm sometimes!  LOL!)

Makes 1 1/2 pt.
