  • Try these tips for homemade salsa

    The type of tomato you use often affects the quality of salsas. Paste tomatoes, such as Roma, have firmer flesh and produce thicker salsas than large slicing tomatoes, although both types make good salsas. Salsa can be thickened by adding tomato paste.

    Use only high quality tomatoes for canning salsa or any other tomato product. Poor quality or overripe tomatoes will yield a very poor salsa and may spoil.

    Stop: go back and reread that sentence. Take a moment and consider what it means. It’s what you think about that produces how you feel. If you don’t believe that, try getting angry without first having angry thoughts or getting sad without first having sad thoughts. You can’t do it, can you?
