Better than Canned Salsa

Since we have such a bumper crop of tomatoes this year, we have been looking for new recipes to try and test. One thing we will not be canning this year is salsa. Calvin absolutely loves my fresh made salsa. The only thing we are going to can for it is our whole tomatoes and we will begin canning peppers this week. This is a really simple recipe with almost no preparation, just sit back and let the blender do its job!

Fresh Salsa


1 quart of canned whole tomatoes or 1 28 oz can from the store, drained
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 of a medium white onion
2 jalapenos, stems cut off and seeds cleaned out (you can leave the seeds to make the salsa spicier) 
1 garlic clove
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup cilantro


1. Throw it all in the blender.
2. Blend until the consistency you prefer. I blend until almost smooth.
3. Refrigerate until ready.
