Friends were leaving town (actually the country) for a week and gave us some tomatoes before they left, so I decided to try my hand at homemade salsa again.
The first time was some what successful.
(I took the blender apart wrong and salsa went every where!)
I cut up the tomatoes, the bulbs of green onions, and jalapenos.
(The last time I handled jalapenos, I ended up getting juice on my contacts and had to wear my glasses for 2 days!
I hate my glasses! This time I wore gloves and still washed my hands repeated.)
I roasted them under the broiler for about 15 minutes.
(They probably could have gone a little bit longer, but I was impatient!)
I put minced garlic, the rest of the green onion, lime juice, and cilantro into a blender
and then added the roasted tomato mix. The tomatoes were hot, so I took the little top off the blender lid. (I think you are supposed to do that! I'm not the most knowledgeable cook in the kitchen!)
The result was yummy, although a little strong on the cilantro. I had to throw away 3 of my tomatoes and forgot to adjust the amount of cilantro. Maybe tomorrow I will pick up some more tomatoes and add them to the salsa to see if that will help.
Did I mention that I'm not the best cook. I do great with a recipe with measurements. It's the things like this without exact measurements that do me in!
Living thru faith,
