I know, I know - I'm terrible at doing this regularly. I have a good excuse though. It turns out, I'm growing a person. It's hard to make yourself do things when all you want in the world is to stop throwing up and then have a really long nap.
However, the nice doctors have given me anti-nausea medication so I've been feeling more like a human being than a throw-up factory the last little while.
To celebrate, I made, and canned, some salsa. Woo!
I admit, I dragged the stool into the kitchen and sat through most of it, but I managed to successfully do a whole salsa batch!
You of course, want to start with some fresh veggies. Something like these ones (2 kinds of hot pepper in the bag, a green pepper, some red onions):
Eventually, you will end up with a nice thick, chunky salsa, at which point, you can start canning. Or not - eating right away is also an option.
I ended up with five jars of salsa, and a little bit left over to eat right away.
I'm resisting the urge to open the jars.
