Peach Salsa

Ok, so salsa isn't technically baking. But it turned out really good, and I had a request for the recipe, plus it's my blog and I can put on it what I want. :-) My sister showed me the technique for the salsa, and really you can put in whatever you have on hand or sounds good. This combination happened to work out really nicely...

Peach Salsa

3 red tomatoes
1 orange tomato
2 peaches
2 jalepeno peppers
1 onion

Quarter & peel the onion. Wash the other ingredients but otherwise leave everything as is. Place all ingredients in a large pot of water; bring to a boil. When the skins pop open, remove the ingredients from the hot water and place them in a large bowl of ice water to stop them from cooking. As you remove them from the water, the skin will fall right off. For a mild salsa, remove the seeds from the jalepenos. Place in a blender & puree.

This makes a very soupy salsa that firms up a bit if you refrigerate it. I imagine you could make it a little less runny if you lightly squeeze some juice out of the tomatoes before putting them in the blender. Have fun with the recipe - this is the first time I used peaches. To make a more savory salsa I've added cilantro and garlic to the blender. I've never made a bad batch!
