Medium Spicy Salsa! - An Illusion Story

in #proofofbrain8 days ago

Above: Making Homemade Salsa from my own tomato, Lemon Drop Aiji Peppers, Green Onions and Garlic

When I am harvesting, I often have a lot, all at once... so, making lots of various things to put up for winter, is important.

Over the summer, I grabbed some Yellow Pear Tomato, Sweetie Cherry Tomato, some White Cherry tomato, some Ukrainian Plum tomato, and froze them, whole, as is.

I have followed someone only who often makes her Salsa this way, and figured, why not try her recipe?

Above: The bag of thawed cherry tomato, the plum, a fresh lime (not mine) some garlic, and some green onion.
Below: Diced Plum tomato

Above: Sliced my Lemon Drop Aiji Pepper. it's a medium hot Pepper. About 20-30,000 Scovilles.
Below: the juice of one full Lime, and zest, as well.

Above: Add cumin, cilantro, minced/fine diced garlic, and stir it all up!
Below: Fresh Salsa, with ingredients sourced locally, and healthy for your family.

If you follow me, you know I prefer to grow my own food for my family and friends. I prefer knowing what ingredients go into our meals. That said, you also know, I have very strong feelings on sourcing locally. It has a much lower impact on our local, national, and global environment.

And that makes me smile... better for the planet, better for my own family.

An Illusion? you ask?

Never let it be said, my days are without drama. this week's #dreemport-wotw, @Dreemport Word Of the Week is Illusion

when someone is working with peppers, it is important, dare I say, Very Important in fact, CRITICAL to wash your hands thoroughly, after cutting spicy or hot pepper.

I did that.... or at least, I thought I did.
Anyway, finished the Salsa making, cleaned up... and then went to the bathroom.
Do you know, men and boys, how very sensitive certain bits are to spicy in medium hot peppers? Let's just say, if you think that you have washed and cleaned your hands, before going to the bathroom, it is merely an ILLUSION

...I did not know I could still move that fast.

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 133 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

Salsa looks delicious...and maybe dangerous 🤣

yes... well, NOW i know better.

Oh ouch! I'm so sorry for what happened to you with your peppered hands... and other parts!

Eyes too. If you have not washed your hands thoroughly, you can literally burn your eyes. Oh the sting.

This recipe made my mouth water. I love spicy salsa. And it's so wonderful when you can make it with the fruits (and vegetables) of your own garden.

Good news: my hands and eyes are safe. it's a bit lower that encountered a spicy afternoon!

La salsa se ve deliciosa, creo que has despertado este interés en mí, creo que voy a iniciar un pequeño jardín en casa

¡Definitivamente pruebe un jardín y cultive su propia comida!

Looks like a great salsa recipe. And it is just great to be able to grow it yourself and make it. 😊😎

Oh… my… sorry to hear that. Hope you are fine again 🤓
You know now never to do that again 😂🤣

it's a great little recipe... and yum yum yum, too!

Does look like that 😊
Good morning 👋🏻☀️ (Soon)

That salsa sounds so yummy... great idea to freeze the cherry tomatoes whole... and that chilli sounds very tingly !LOLZ I hope you've recovered, Greg! I'm still rolling with laughter 🤣🤣🤣 I know... am I mean? nah... it's all an illusion perpetuated by your hilarious post hehehe. Good luck in the contest!!! I need to head to bed... way too late for me and I have to be in the office tomorrow... !LUV !ALIVE
