My counter is getting covered with tomatoes and tomatillos and we are almost out of salsa. I froze the first picking of peppers and a bag of cilantro. There are coriander seeds to pick. I just dug the garlic. It is time to start thinking about salsa making!

I discover I really like home made salsa verde and that tomatillos are easy to grow. 

But the plants got a LOT bigger than I thought they would. Also they grow up then spread out with a "drop zone" under them. I will have to give each one a tomato tub to itself and you need at least two for cross pollination and I want at least three. This is gonna cut into my tomato count, but looking at this year's tomatoes, we're about to be "assaulted" so maybe cutting back is in order.

I think 3 tomatillos this year was 1 too many. The plants are huge this year.
!2 cups of salsa are in the canner right now. This batch was half tomatillo and half tomato.

Turan, thanks for bumping this up.  I had not ever thought of making homemade salsa until I saw this recipe. I thought I would just try a batch to finish off some of my harvest.  Yum! Made a second batch last night.
Does anyone use homemade tomato sauce in this instead of canned? If so, what is your recipe? It seems such a shame to buy tomato sauce when I have so many tomatoes laying here.
I am freezing this not canning it, so I do not have to worry about the acidity changing.

kygardener, I love this recipe as well. I have made my own tweaks to it, I think they are all documented in this thread somewhere. So far I have made one batch this year. We seem to like it with half tomatoes and half tomatillos, that doesn't alter the acidity.

Yes, I use my own tomato paste. The paste is for adjusting how thick or thin you like your salsa. We like it fairly thick, so it doesn't run out of a burrito or off a chip too much. I start the salsa recipe by oven roasting my tomatoes, thus evaporating a lot of water off, I measure after the roasting. When I can tomato sauce I use oven roasted tomatoes as well and after pureeing them I often fill a crock pot and let them cook down a bit further. That thick sauce is what I add to the salsa recipe if it needs it.

This is the first Labor Day weekend I have not made salsa during in a long time. I need those San Marzano tomatoes to RIPEN BLAST IT ALL!. Rolling Eyes

So I can just roast tomatoes, puree them and then cook them down to the thickness I want?  At what temperature and for how long should I roast them?  How many pounds of tomatoes to get a cup of sauce? Thanks!

Yes, you can.
There are too many variables to give specifics.  It takes many more pounds and takes longer when using big slicer tomatoes than paste types, but the result still tastes good. So much depends on what you have and what you like.

Currently I have tomatoes and tomatillos cooling in the oven after being roasted. Peppers and garlic and onions are waiting on the counter. This should be the last batch needed for this year.

Turan,

Thanks again for the info.  I ended up using Better Boys, plum and Brandywines to make the sauce. I see what you mean about all the variables.  It is a good way to use up excess tomatoes. And a good reason to make another batch of sala Smile

Another salsa question.  Does anyone use cherry tomato's in this? Or, does that not work well?

Sure, I use cherry tomoatoes. Mine tend to be very sweet so I taste test to see if I need to correct for that. Also they are very watery so I want to thicken them first. They would be really tasty in a peach tomato salsa, but that is a different recipe than Annies, I think Ball canning has a recipe that can be canned.
