Taco Sauce ~ Seed Saving



(before running it thru the sauce maker)

I canned a batch of homemade taco sauce.  I picked fresh jalapenos for it, and boy are my hot peppers doing great in this heat.  It has zero corn starch and only 1/4 cup of sugar (no corn syrup) and only real food.


10 glorious jars of taco sauce done. Checked that off the list.  Hoping to get more tomatoes.


Seed saving has begun.  I have bell pepper seeds drying and a bit of jalapeno seeds.  It's harder to save my hot pepper seeds, as I freeze and can with the seeds in, but will get them dried as well.  I have some Amish paste seeds drying as well.

Oh! Please post the taco sauce recipe! I've already copied your hot pepper mustard sauce (I think that's the name), but I haven't been able to make it yet. taco sauce is a good way to use up surplus tomatoes. I always enjoy your posts. thank you.
