Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp tomato paste
  • 5 medium roma tomatoes
  • 3 medium ripe peaches
  • 1 medium purple onion
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves peeled and minced
  • handful of cilantro [around 1/2 cup packed]
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne

Instructions

  • On the stove top in a small saucepan., heat the vinegar, sugar and tomato paste together until the sugar dissolves and the tomato paste has melted completely, then remove from the heat.
  • Clean all of the vegetables thoroughly. Peel the onion and peaches and remove the pit.
  • Cut all of the veggies and peaches into similar size chunks. When cutting the jalapeno pepper, leave the seeds in only if you like your salsa really spicy, otherwise, use a teaspoon to remove them.
  • Place the blade attachment into the center of the food processor, then begin to layer the ingredients evenly around the blade. Reserve the garlic cloves to add later.
  • Add the cilantro close to the top so it won't over process.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Place the top firmly on the food processor and lock it into place.
  • Use the pulse feature to process the salsa. Drizzle the vinegar mixture in through the tube at the top while you pulse.
  • Remove the lid and taste. Adjust the seasonings, if needed. Depending on how ripe your peaches are, you may like it a little sweeter, or the cayenne may need adjusting.
  • Mince the garlic by hand. Stir it into the salsa at the end of processing.
  • Store in an airtight container. Chill thoroughly for at least 2 hours before serving.
