PS Linda, do you leave or remove the seeds?
Hey Everyone! Check out my latest blog post on canning Salsa Fresca with Green Tomatoes. Great fresh too!
Its been quite awhile since I did any canning from the farm. We relocated to Florida (15 years ago) due to the lack of employment in my small home town and I have to claim "city slicker with dirt under nails" status instead of earth mama like it used to be. I remember canning tomato sauce from garden ripe tomatoes and hot peppers, pickles, etc and truly miss the things I grew up with. I am hoping to get back into food preservation in smaller quantities until we can purchase property in the country where I can have a real garden (1/2 acre or so) and spend my time canning, freezing, dehydrating and making jams and pie fillings. I'm sure there are newer ways to accomplish this so tips and advise for someone just getting back to it after all these years would be helpful.
If you haven't canned for awhile be sure to use updated sources for your recipes and canning times, etc. Many of these things change from time to time and you want to make sure you are following safe practices.
Those are exactly the types of things I need to know. It's going to be like being a novice all over again... but I like a challenge.
Hey Meaghan - your blog and recipe for Salsa Fresca with Green Tomatoes sounds fantastic. Green tomatoes are one of my favorites whether they are fried (in my bacon lettuce and fried green tomato sandwich), canned or in a marinated Green tomato salad my Aunt Millie taught me to make. I can't wait to try your Salsa Fresca ~ I'm sure it will be added to my favorite things to have with green tomatoes.
