The tomato season is winding down here as the days grow shorter and gloomy. I have just one tomato full of green, unripe cherry tomatoes. I feel like that most of them will not turn red. So I decided to cut them and make salsa verde.
My little one was happy to help.
I took a bowl of green cherry tomatoes, cut them and added chopped
3 gloves of garlic
1 sweet onion
1 jalapeno chili (I had canned)
Juice of ½ lime
1 tsp of cumin seed
1 tbsp of brown sugar
2 tbst of apple vinegar
Black pepper and salt (a pinch)
I fry all ingredients with a rice oil. I use the rice oil because it has no taste for me.
I sterilize glass jars from baby food and put salsa it them. Then I close them. And one tip, I found in a French magazine this year. When you are using baby food jars for jam, to have vacuum sealed, you need to take a pan, fill it with water about 5cm deep, put jars upside down in it and boil for five minutes. After they get cold, the center of the top pops inside the same way it does on an unopened baby food jar.
It was great with bbq ribs!
