All you need is salsa, plus a starter culture, a clean mason jar, warm weather and three days later you can enjoy this delicious and remarkably healthy condiment. Salsa is easy enough to make yourself but you could purchase a high quality, fresh salsa and simply add your starter. My recommendation: purchase some ripe, juicy, heirloom tomatoes from your local farmer's market and whip up your own salsa creation! Add spicy, sweet or mild peppers, onions, garlic, lemons or lime, plenty of cilantro, and even corn.
5-7 medium tomatoes
1 green bell pepper
1/2 sweet onion
1 bunch cilantro
2-4 cloves garlic
Step 1: Cut tomatoes, bell pepper, onion and garlic into large chunks.
Step 2: Remove cilantro leaves from stems. Discard stems and chop cilantro.
Step 3: Add to a food processor with the juice from the lime.
Step 4: Blend to your desired preference and sea salt to your taste. I left mine somewhat chunky like pico de gallo.
Step 5: Add your starter culture and mix thoroughly. If you're using juice from sauerkraut 1-2T is good. If you're using whey 1/2C is good. Use directions on your starter culture packet if choosing that option.
Step 6: Pour into clean mason jars. This recipe will make about 1 quart give or take. I divided mine into two 16oz mason jars. Close the lids on tightly and leave sitting at room temperature for 2-3 days.
Do I even need to suggest ways to enjoy this salsa? Trust me, make a couple batches.
