Salsa Day Prep

The garden is producing and we are harvesting as things are ready. 

It makes "Salsa Day" so much easier if I have already chopped and frozen many of the ingredients.

A food processor makes for quick work.

Be sure to wear gloves so the pepper oils don't bother your hands. (Or worse, get into your eyes because you touch them after working with the peppers - that was a painful lesson learned a few years ago!)
I have a blue pair of gloves I reserve for using with food - my yellow ones I use for cleaning.

Label your bags of chopped ingredients and freeze them until the big day arrives. If you won't be making salsa this year, you can still chop and freeze your peppers and onions this way to use in other recipes.
