Illinois State Fair – Red Ribbon Tomato Salsa

“As a kid, I watched and helped my mom can tomatoes until she quit at the age of 86. It was a very labor-intensive job and she used a pressure canner, which is why I wanted to try something a lot easier and quicker. "The Mrs. Wages® Medium Salsa mix is very good and has just the right amount of heat for the average person. I liked the option of using fresh tomatoes or store bought canned tomatoes. In this recipe, I used petite diced tomatoes and followed the recipe to the letter using the hot water bath method to preserve them. "I have used this same mix for "ready quickly salsa" and it is just as good. As with all salsa ( mix or scratch) the flavor will be more intense the next day. For our taste, we like to add a little chopped fresh cilantro to the finished product.”

Mrs. Wages® Blue Ribbon Salsa

I only use Mrs. Wages® mixes to make my salsa. I grow my own tomatoes and I used a combination of Beefsteak and Black Krim, which is an heirloom tomato. They are delicious. My family loves the taste of it. This was my first time at entering the State Fair canning division. I was absolutely shocked that I won a blue ribbon. We use the salsa for all our burritos, quesadillas, as well as with tortilla chips.
