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
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.
