Merry Christmas to Me

I bought this as an early Christmas present for myself

082

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!
