Wait No More
Wow, where did the time go? Our summer flew by and we filled it to the brim. And we are recently back from two weeks in Turkey. I will be posting some shots of some of the fabulous food we ate while traveling. I will also be working on some Turkish-inspired dishes for future posts. In the meantime, let's continue where we left off, waiting for tomatoes.No more waiting. End of season tomatoes came our way via E & B. I didn't have enough energy today for canning but I did spend a fair amount of time turning all of these tomatoes, in varying degrees of ripeness, into salas - lots of it. I diced all of these tomatoes then added half a white onion - diced, two large cloves of garlic - minced, two jalapenos - seeded and diced, one bunch cilantro - chopped, about a cup of frozen corn, one can of black beans (rinsed and drained), the juice of a small lime, salt to taste, about two tablespoons of olive oil, and sugar. Yeah, I know, I don't like putting sugar in things but these tomatoes were so very acidic it was painful. So a little sugar helped cut that bite.I got two quarts, a pint, and a little bit. We'll be eating salsa all week but it's really tasty.
