MitchaRachia Farmhouse Salsa

It's good. Real good. It definitely rivals any of these other salsa companies coming from Vermont gardens. And, as I love sharing my vibes, I will share with you! Check it!

Please note two items of importance in regards to MitchaRachia Farmhouse Salsa:

1.) Before you attempt - get your canning supplies and get someone who has canned before to give you a lesson in canning. Not me though, I charge $100 an hour.
2.) You can switch the veggie items around as you see fit and also also mix up the spices a bit for your taste, but the other ingredients must remain for the sake of how to preserve without chemicals.

# denotes directly from my garden! (this made about 4 quarts)

8 cups of chopped, seeded, peeled, and cored red and yellow tomatoes (this is MESSY!!!) #
2 cups of chopped, seeded, and peeled cucumbers #
3 cups of chopped and seeded green and yellow peppers #
1 cup chopped hot peppers (wear gloves so you don't get burned) #
1 cup chopped green onion #
1 cup chopped leeks #
3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup minced cilantro #
1/4 cup chopped chives #
2 tablespoons marjoram
2 teaspoons of salt
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons lime juice

After you spend several hours chopping, peeling, de-seeding, etc., combine all ingredients in a large sauce pot and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for ten minutes. Ladle hot salsa into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Adjust two-piece caps (meaning lightly screw on just as the first bit of pressure can be applied). Process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

You live in Vermont!!

I was challenged by my fellow bloggers to run for "President" along with my running mate Mr. Sock Monkey. We are attempting to campaign across America by getting "invites" to visit all 50 states from bloggers.

We have managed to get invitations from all but YOUR STATE and are WORRIED we won't pull it off. (Mr. Sock Monkey is threatening to get ugly...)

I saw your blog listed somewhere and was hoping you might jump on board and invite us to your state!

You can read about our mission here: (this was the original post)

We decided to start our campaign ONLY if we get all 50 states. As it looks now, we are starting to write our WE COULDNT GET ALL 50 STATES CUZ WE SUCK concession speech!

Thanks for considering helping me (and one angry sock monkey!)
