Homemade Canned Salsa

The purpose of What’s For Dinner? is to provide you a recipe with items on sale this week, with no more than 10 ingredients (not including pantry items), and coming in at under $10 per meal.

So, remember the garden that I talked about early in summer.

We were blessed with a ton of cucumbers and made pickles.

A ton of basil and made pesto.

And no tomatoes. None. Nada.

And I was sad.

Because, I REALLY wanted to have some homemade salsa.

But the tomato gods were smiling because…..

My father has two green thumbs and the ability to grow an obsence amount of tomatoes.

The only problem – he lives in Lincoln, NE and a three-hour drive isn’t logistically (or financially) possible for tomatoes. But, this month the kiddos were going to my folks for a week at the exact same time my father “was done” with his tomato windfall.

So when we switched off kids, we also became the proud owner of two HUGE boxes of tomatoes.

(Of course, we told him we were “doing him a favor” by taking them off his hands, but in all honesty – we were drooling over our haul of red yumminess.

And then began the making of Jake’s Salsa.
