I would love to show you the quilt I am working on…but alas, I can’t…it’s a surprise.
Instead I will show you what we’re doing today.
We are making some whole tomatoes….some salsa and some rotel type tomatoes. The girls are here to help….
Here’s Kayla…she’s in charge of removing the skins.
Kelli is manning the food processor chopping peppers and onions….
It was Kelli’s first time at it. The silly girl didn’t know that you should NEVER touch your eyes after chopping jalapenos and onions.
And well Puppycat (Kelli’s beagle)…as usual she’s in charge of the entertainment. If you’re looking for a recipe to make rotel tomatoes, here goes…
1gallon chopped tomatoes with skins removed
2 large green bell peppers chopped
1 large onion diced
8 hot peppers chopped
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup vinegar
1 1/2 T salt
Mix all ingredients. Put in hot sterilized jars. Add 1 tsp of lemon juice to the top of each jar. Seal and process in a hot water bath for 15 minutes.
Tomorrow is the day to come back and check out the Crumb a Long…I am so excited.
