Lame Cherry Salsa
As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
I was experimenting with salsa. I found that sugar takes the bitter out of tomatoe and cumin is what makes salsa have all the ingredients taste like it should.
Here is the Lame Cherry recipe.
2 quart cans of crushed tomatoes
1 large red onion
1 minced garlic clove
1 green pepper
1 can of green chilies
1 jalapeno pepper chopped
1/2 cup cilantro leaves chopped
1 tablespoon lime juice concentrate
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
This will make a pile of this enough to have enough of it until the next time. I suppose you could freeze it, but it will keep for some time in the fridge at the back. It is fresh tasting and improves like herb vinegar as the flavors leach into the tomatoe and combine.
TL says this tastes exactly like it should. Do not overdo on the cilantro though as we made some in the metro with black beans and things, and while it was good, that takes some time getting used to. This is about like Pace Picante sauce, better in more pieces in it.
