I already had plenty of jars at home but I wanted the wire basket lifter thingy for the pot of water and the rubberized jar tongs so at noon I went to Canadian Tire to pick them up. The rack was perfect for dropping and blanching the tomatoes and the tongs also worked to pick up the hot tomatoes.I had picked up this book from the Library on Thursday to find the perfect recipe. From beginning to end it took about 3 hours and made the exact quantity specified. I ended up with 5 x 500ml jars and about a half cup left over.

My cousin Nerrad and his wife are amazing cooks! Nerrad has often gifted us with jars of home-made Salsa proclaiming how easy it is to make; I decided to give it a try this afternoon.

Taste testing the leftovers...it appears that it's going to be awesome! I think it needs a little bit of salt to round out the flavours. Next time I'm going to make it an all day adventure and make a few different batches. Somehow I don't think these will last very long!
