Carrie, great post on how to use the end of the season harvest to prepare and can salsa. It's become one of the main things to make at the end of the garden year in my neighborhood. It seems that every one has a couple tomato and pepper plants. It's been a great year here in Nebraska for gardens. We have had just the right amounts of rain at the right times to make for a bountiful harvest. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe and expertise. ***** Nebraska Dave
