One slight problem with this unexpected bounty: I had just gone grocery shopping and already had more tomatoes than our family of four can eat quickly enough. What to do? Make salsa! I had never made homemade salsa before and after doing so, I wonder why I haven't been doing this all my life.
FRESH-FROM-GRANDMA'S-GARDEN SALSA (HOT!)
Boil a large pot of water. Cut x's in the bottoms of your tomatoes, and plunge them for just a second into the pot. Pour into colander and let cool a minute, then they're ready for easy peeling. Get out your food processor. Peel, core and quarter the tomatoes. Plop them into the food processor, along with the peppers (de-stemmed), onion (quartered), garlic (peeled) and lime (juiced). Salt to taste. Strain a bit of the juice off and serve with tortilla chips. Caliente!
