Verde Salsa

This spring I planted tomatillos in the garden. I went out to the garden and got all the ripe tomatillos off the vine. So I gathered the ingredients I needed to try and make Verde Salsa. I got out the blender and the food processor to help chop things up. 

Here are the ingredients you need:

10 cups of tomatillos 

1 Med onion chopped 

2 teaspoons garlic

1/2 cup cilantro 

1 tbsp of lime juice 

A little bit of a jalapeño pepper

(But wait there is more)

I cut the tomatillos in half and roasted them cut side down in a pan that I covered with aluminum foil. I figured there would be juice and I was right.

I put them in the oven on broil for 7 minutes and checked them. Ended up putting another minute and a half on them.

While this was going on I sautéed some yellow onion and garlic.

Cooked till it was translucent and then sat both the tomatillos and the onions aside to cool off. I put them in a bowl. After taking the tomatillos off the pan I poured the juice into a bowl just incase I need to make the salsa more saucy.

Then I put it all in the food process (was gonna use the blender but didn’t think it was big enough.

Tasted it and it needed some help…I added 1 ripe mango, 1 medium size yellow tomato, 1/2 of a grilled peach, 1/2 a grilled nectarine, 1/2 a lime, 1&1/4 tablespoons course salt, 1 small roasted red pepper, 1/2 of a green onion, 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder, another small magi and another yellow tomato. Then and only them did it Taste good enough to eat.

Then I canned some of it!

We will have some for this winter!
