Jessica's salsa

Jessica's Salsa (I make a bunch at once, so it can be pared down or changed to your liking)

10 lbs Tomatoes
2 large cans tomato puree
3 onions, chopped
3 green peppers, chopped
1 small can chilis (can change according to how hot you like it)
1/4 c. lemon juice (or lime)
3 TBS vinegar
6 cloves garlic, minced
6 TBS dried cilantro (or fresh)
4 TBS sugar
4 tsp cumin
2 tsp parsley
Chili powder (add as needed)

Place tomatoes in a pot of boiling water until skins start to peel. (About 30 seconds). Transfer tomatoes into ice water until cool. Remove, and take off the skins, stems, and any bruises. Chop finely (or put in food processor), and put in a LARGE pot. Chop onions and green peppers in a food processor. Add to tomatoes. Add the rest of the ingredients, stiring throughly. Bring to boiling, and then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 min. Transfer to glass jars, process 25 min (pints) or 35 (quarts) in a hot water bath. Enjoy for months to come!!
