peach salsa

KC and Sofia brought us nearly six pounds of fresh peaches from a tree in their neighborhood at the play date. I knew I wanted to make something other than jam.  I came across this lady and her recipes on NPR.  After checking out her blog – Mrs. Wheelbarrow’s Kitchen, I decided to have a go making spicy peach salsa.

Here’s the recipe:


6 cups peaches, peeled and diced

1 1/4 cups red onion, chopped

1-2 jalapeno peppers, chopped — two jalapenos with ribs and seeds makes a very hot salsa

1 cup sweet red pepper, chopped — my preference is Jimmy Nardello

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, loosely packed

3/4 cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

I added three mexican onions I found at the grocery store – just couldn’t pass them up.  They seemed ideal.  You can follow the rest of the instruction here at Mrs. Wheelbarrow’s Kitchen or at NPR.

It tastes great!  Not too spicy for me which is good. I made 10 half pints and one quart  – and even had some left over for the fridge.

One thought on “peach salsa

  1. Looks really tasty! From the picture it looks like the peaches ripened up really well. I can’t get peaches to ripen properly to save my life. They always get wrinkly and I have to use a veggie peeler to get the skin off….
