Salsa!!




Salsa, adapted from my mother-in-law's recipe



(makes a mild salsa, with an ever so slight kick)



25lbs fresh roma tomatoes



4 cans tomato soup



2 cups vinegar



1/2 cup lime juice*



1/4 cup salt



1/2 cup sugar



3lbs onions, diced



3-4 green bell peppers, chopped



3-4 red bell peppers, chopped



8-10 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced



4-6 jalapeno peppers, WITH SEEDS, diced



3 large bulbs garlic, minced*



2-3 bunches fresh cilantro*



Mix everything together and simmer until desired consistency (I simmered about 2 hours).



Put in sterlized jars for canning. Process in water bath for 20 minutes.



Made 20-30 pints.
