Liz's Salsa Recipe:

20 large tomatoes
6 large onions
1 3/4 cup vinegar
6 large peppers
3 hot peppers
8 tsp cummin
8 tsp salt
9 dashes of hot sauce
3 small cans of tomato paste
7 tsp oregano
10 cloves og garlic
1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp crushed chillies
1 bunch of fresh cilantro
6 tbsp cornstarch

I cut everything up in my food processor, throw it all in a large stock pot and simmer it for 25 minutes or more, stirring occasionally. This makes a medium hot recipe. Sometimes I switch the quantity around for the hot and sweet peppers depending on what has grown in the garden and if I want hotter salsa or not. Then place it in a hot water bath for 20 mins. Tastes better after it's been stored for a few months and the flavours have had time to set.
