Finished making another batch of BBQ sauce last night. Figured that I'd just go ahead and make a batch of salsa with the remnants. Waste not, want not.

sounds like fun, any chance we could request some Apricot-preserves?

Sorry. No apricots this year. Did some peaches, pears, cherries and apples though.

I did find a really nice apricot tree in my grandmothers neighborhood though. I'm going to try and see if they'll let me pick some next year.

BBQ Sauce Salsa?

Sounds fantastic.

It wasn't really BBQ salsa. It was just deciding on not wasting the mats used to make the sauce. Since they both have very similar ingredients, I figured that I might as well do up some salsa in the process. Cooked the tomatoes down with minced onions, bell peppers, garlic, celery (which I sauteed with paprika for a while to soften them up) and then strained out the veggie pulp/solids, put that into the salsa kettle and the liquids into the BBQ sauce pot. At that point, I added the goodies to each. Molasses, brown sugar, sugar, pineapple juice, etc. for the sauce, and lots o' cumin, coriander, cilantro, lime juice, pineapples, for the salsa. Actually, they both had roughly the same ingredients in varying amounts other than the molasses and sugars. I did use cider vinegar for the sauce versus white vinegar for the salsa.

First pic is of the initial tomato, veggie amalgamation. Second is the salsa. Third is the sauce.

A fresh salsa almost can't be beat. Love it.

It's why I have a garden and why I can. I never buy salsa period. This year I got 19 pints and seven quarts of salsa out of the garden. Made mango salsa, black bean and corn salsa, pineapple salsa, papaya salsa, peach salsa, salsa salsa, etc. And that was after making numerous batches of BBQ sauce that precluded the salsa.

I'll trust you on the BBQ sauce, but bell peppers and celery in the salsa is heresy.

Bell peppers provide THE pepper taste in the salsa. Use the other stuff for the heat, but to get a distinct pepper flavor, bells are essential. (I grew Thai's, Habanero's, Jalapeno's, Cayenne's, Anaheim's, Poblano's, Serrano's and Red, Green and Purple Bells. There's a little bit of all of them in the salsa - depending upon which salsa I made.)
