Fresh Picante

Ingredients :
8 peeled medium tomatoes
2 Green Peppers
1 to 2 jalapeno’s with seeds
1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon of pepper
1/8 cup of lime juice
1 ½ teaspoons of garlic salt
3 garlic cloves

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth in texture and then refrigerate. Garnish with a little bit of finely chopped cilantro and onion for an added extra Fresh picante - will keep for around a week or so in the refrigerator.

To Can: 
The above recipe will make around 2 to 3 half pint jars - so multiply the ingredients x4 to can a dozen at a time. Simply process the ingredients the same way and add to a large pot. Bring to a very slow boil and let simmer for an hour. Then simply jar up and stick in your pressure canner for 15 minutes – or water bath for 40 minutes – and you have access to home-made year round picante salsa!
