Personal Notes:
In 1966 we'd just moved into our home in Hemet, CA. This was the first of many family gatherings. This meant lots of good food, music, lots of laughter and good family unity. I had the opportunity to make Chili salsa like my Grandma Grace Mora had taught me to make years ago on her molcajete. She would toast fresh tomatoes and jalapenos on her tortilla grill. Then she'd peel the skins off them, put them in the molcajete, grind with the stone, add the salt and cominos. It took a while, but was so tasty and worth the extra work and just better because Grandma had prepared it. I made the salsa for the party in my molcajete, it was a success because there were requests for more, I needed to find a quick and easier way to make the salsa. I found jalapenos and whole tomatoes in cans in my pantry, I put them in my electric blender along with the cloves of garlic. The flavor was like Grandma's salsa and less work. The family thought I had made it in the molcajete. (I wonder if Grandma would have ever used the blender). Using fresh jalapenos in place of canned works too. Just simmer the chilies in a pan with water to cover until tender,cut off the stems and follow recipe. Now you can make fresh salsa like Grandma Grace prepared years ago with lots of love.
