I've made salsa from scratch before, chopping onions and peppers, then cooking them with tomatoes. But this year, I decided to try a mix. Our generous neighbor had given us two 3-gallon buckets of tomatoes from her garden. The packet made the process easy peasy (as my four-year old nephew would say) and the salsa was delicious! The packet contained dried jalapeno peppers. Medium was just the right amount of heat for me. Here are photos of the process.
