Ingredients:  
15 lbs. of tomatoes
to 1 lb. of jalapeno peppers.
8 med. bell peppers
c. salt
2 c. white vinegar.
8 med. onions
6-8 cloves garlic

Directions:
Directions:
Blanch and peel tomatoes. Put the ingredients in a blender and grind up. I finely chop the jalapeno (remove seeds if you prefer less hot), onions (I prefer Vidalia or sweet Texas) and garlic (optional and I like it) and with the rest, I like to leave chunks.

Take a roaster and cook outside (if you cook indoors it will leave a strong order in the house for a few days with the onions and jalapeno peppers). Cook for approx 3 to 4 hours stirring occasionally. Use the proper canning procedures to can the salsa.

Personal Notes:
More than happy to give you this for your cookbook. This recipe was given to me over 20 years ago from a trucking friend in New Mexico. This will give you from 9-11 quarts of great salsa. I promise you it will be the last time you will ever buy store bought salsa. Hope you enjoy as much as my family enjoys the salsa. Several quarts were sent to Iraq, Afghanistan as well as Hawaii to my sons who are in the Navy. Last year alone I fixed up 80 quarts as it is a required food in this family.
***********
Pete brought samples of this salsa to our reunion, and it's really good. He brought J.B. & Perk a jar of it, but all of us sampled it all night long. You will love it.

Pete has attended several of our reunions and always seems to win the best door prize. He won a beautiful picture of the coke ovens that Bonnie donated and won again next year. Pete is just a lucky guy and we love having him at our reunions. He and his wife are welcome additions to our CHS Class of '61 family. Pete is fun to have around and we hope he makes our 50th.
