I cooked breakfast for Mr. FT's birthday yesterday,
which is why
he sent me to town for Big Mac Meals last night!
But three days ago,
I made mango salsa and I canned it.
I felt like a queen or at least I will feel like a queen when we eat it.
3 Red Mangoes
3 Red Pepper
2 large Oranges peeled
1 Sweet onion
2 green onions
1/3 to 1/2 cup lime juice
1 TBSP Amchur (Green Mango Powder)
1 TBSP grated ginger (optional)
salt to taste
Dice all ingredients and mix. Add lime juice.
I found it to be very liquid, but no worries as it thickened in the canning process.
I sterilized 5 pint jars and lids but I didn't get five.
Each jar was filled to 1/2 below the top, except the fifth jar. It was only 3/4 full.
I felt a little cheated until we ate it.
Then I felt like that guy that saw a double rainbow on YouTube a few years ago.
I fitted each jar with a shiny new lid.
Because they were shiny, I stared at them for a bit.
Dropped them in the water bath and processed them for thirty minutes.
Hopefully this prevents any botulism from happening,
I will let the family do a taste
test before I dare dip my chip in there.
Kinda the way royalty had tasters
before they ate, and that's why,
I feel like a queen!
How I love my tasters!
I was on a cooking roll and made my friend's yummy dessert recipe for the third time!
You can find her recipe here at Silo Hill Farm
This is definitely worthy of a mention cuz it was sooooo good.
Mr. FT gave it three thumbs up. Thanks Danni!
