Salsa – 1st place winner in the mild category 24 Sep 12

Blanch and peel 12 large tomatoes.
Chop into small pieces and put in large pot.

Chop the following into desired sized pieces and add to pot:

4 jalapeno peppers
3 large white onions
4 bell peppers

Then add:
2 – 6oz cans tomato paste
2 Tbsp salt
1-1/2 Tbsp garlic salt
1 cup vinegar
1/4 cup sugar

Heat all ingredients to a boil; then reduce heat to simmer. Cook 45 minutes from start of boil, stirring frequently to keep from burning.

About 10 minutes before the end of boil, take 3 Tbsp cornstarch and liquefy with a little water. Slowly stir into mixture to help thicken it, being careful as salsa can burn easily.
