Ive recently descoved the love of canning my own salsa. Every late summer Ill can my stewed italian tomatoes and tomato sauce- but salsa comes out so nice. I do not make it spicy hot. Heat can be added at serving time for me.
- 5-7 pounds ripe tomatoes ( blanched ice bath peeled and chopped)
- 3 cups chopped onion
- 2 large green peppers chopped
- 2 large red peppers chopped
- 4 cloves garlic diced
- 1 heaping cup chopped cilantro
- 2tsp cummin
- 2 tap dried Oregano
- 2 tsp cayenne powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt and pepper ( to taste)
- 1 cup applecider vinegar
- 2 lg cans green fire roasted chilies ( or fresh)
Cook all ingrediants on high to a full boil- cook for 20 minutes. Taste to see if you want a bit of sugar or more salt to taste.
Place in prepared jars for canning. This batch made 10- 16 oz jars.

I was raised on a large farm in a small community of Long Shop, Virginia. Just a stones throw from Blacksburg, Va and a short drive to the WV boarder. I grew up appreciating Appalachia cooking with low budgets and home grown veggies. What honestly tastes better than a warm tomato out of the garden sliced fat with salt and pepper? Maybe a bowl of good brown pinto beans and cornbread. Or even better grilled trout fresh caught from the creek!
My childhood was a dream... and what has made my passion for food- sharing good meals with good friends and loved ones.
My food always has a story and always in sizes to share.
I now have begun a new adventure with my love Jason, and we created the Bellman and Concierge LLC and reopened the beautiful Oaks Victorian Inn. A childhood home I knew well growing up and now saving for many to enjoy as a Boutique Bed and Breakfast. Cooking for guests and sharing traditions. Come visit us at
