If you add somewhere around 20 pounds of peppers, a few bushels of tomatoes, and 3 or 4 trips to the grocery store worth of onions into a big pot, this is what you get. Okay, 2 big pots. Oh yeah, and an ENTIRE bottle of lemon juice with a few other key ingredients also.
We cooked the salsa inside, but when it came to processing it, we did it outside. It worked out pretty well, even in the rain. We were extremely efficient! We worked together very well too. They say too many cooks spoil the stew, not in our case, all of us made it into perfection.
Okay, here is the finished story. 95 bottles, equalling 87 1/2 pints of salsa, 26 pints of relish, and 5 1/2 pints of raspberry jam. TA DA!! Mindy also had me purchase a couple of boxes of peaches for her to make into jam in her spare time!! She technically and truly has no spare time. She is the busiest person I know, honestly. Good luck girl!
Thanks to my sister in laws for a pretty dang fun Saturday, and very productive too! I was home by 8:00 pm!
My title says there were 99 bottles of salsa on the wall, well, not technically, but at least one. We made a little mess, sorry Ellen! We did clean up pretty well, but I don't think we wiped off the wall behind the stove!
