Homemade Salsa

Summer is definitely over. The temps are getting chilly around here and I picked up my last farm share (CSA = community supported agriculture) on Thursday.  It included green onions, radishes, turnips, spinach, butternut squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, cilantro, and my last fresh picked tomatoes of the year. Bummer!

I love supporting local farmers and I have been 100% pleased with my farm share from Hand Sewn Farms based out of Manchester, MI.  Megan was such a pleasure to work with.

Knowing these were my last fresh tomatoes of the season, I knew there was one thing I really wanted to make...SALSA!!!  I already had onions and cilantro so I was well on my way!

I could just sit and eat a whole bowl of salsa.  Yum!  This batch had a few too many onions for my liking so I scaled it down in the recipe for next time. This was my last taste of summer. It's time to move on to soups and lots of pumpkin recipes.

6 medium tomatoes
1/4 large sweet onion
3 big cloves of raw garlic
1 medium-sized JalapeƱo pepper, seeded
1/2 c. fresh cilantro (measured before chopping)
Freshly squeezed lime juice – 1/2 to 3/4 of a medium lime
Salt and pepper to taste
Dice all the ingredients and put them into in a bowl. Give it a good stir. Taste test and make adjustments as necessary. Store in refrigerator in an air tight container.
It gets even better after it sits in the fridge for a couple of days, as the flavors meld together.
