Mom and I made peach salsa today.  It was the first time for either of us.  Dad loves peach salsa, and so do it and it is so expensive to buy.  Dad has been buying peaches from the local orchard and they are very yummy!  He also has an over abundance of tomatoes, onions, peppers, and jalapenos from his garden.  I love this time of year and it isn't often that I'm home when all the tomatoes, corn, watermelon, cantaloupes, and other garden produce are ready.  I usually hit it just before they start producing or after it's all gone.  What a treat for me this time.

Anyway, I looked a couple of recipes up on the Internet and devised my own.  This is what I came up with


6 lbs. tomatoes, peeled and diced
3/4 lb. green peppers, seeds removed and diced
3 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed and diced
1 cup onion chopped
1 bulb garlic peeled and chopped
3/4 - 1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. cilantro finely chopped
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt
8 tbsp. sugar ( or to taste)
1 lb peaches peeled and diced
2 tbsp. lemon or lime juice

Combine all the ingredients and simmer in large pot on the stove on medium high heat until it's cooked down to the consistency you like.  I cooked mine about 2 hours.


And look at this beautiful salsa.  I love it when there's just a little left to sample as soon as it cools!  It tastes so yummy!

  1. MMMMMmmmmmm. That looks so yummy. My mom used to can peaches, which were very tasty all through the winter. At some point she started to freeze them, which were also yummy, but never like the canned ones.


Your comments make my day. I love to hear what you have to say. Please leave me a comment.
