Merry Christmas to Me

I bought this as an early Christmas present for myself


and I used it to make salsa last night. I have about 20 pounds of tomatoes that I saved from the garden before it froze. I wrapped the green ones in newspaper and they've been ripening over the past couple of weeks.

The food grinder made making the salsa an absolute cinch! The most I had to do is cut the veggies into pieces that fit into the grinder and it did all the work for me.
The only thing I had to chop myself was cilantro. It took care of 8lbs of tomatoes, 3 onions and a handful of jalapenos.

I used this recipe for the salsa.

Tomorrow I plan on using the vegetable strainer to make a couple of jars of tomato sauce. It takes care of the skins and seeds for you so no boiling and peeling for me any more!


  1. Woohoo! We bought Matt's mom one a couple Christmas ago and got her old one-we love it!!! Enjoy and Merry Christmas to you!

  2. That looks amazing! And watch your pantry, I may sneak in there to try the salsa!
