Just in time, I got 10 pounds of organic tomatillos ordered for $14.00. I had my onions and garlic on hand; as well as our jalapenos and serano peppers in the garden. I had organic lime juice on hand but checked and it's $4.25 for 16 oz and I used a good 12 ounces of it.
Looks like I have around $20 of cash invested in this recipe plus on hand stuff. I know there is a dollar amount to that but I don't feel like figuring out how much my three onions cost. To figure my labor on the garden produce - well, that's priceless so we better stick with cash.
I tripled the recipe and should have gotten 12 pints. I got 10 1/2. I only canned 10 pints because we're going to eat this heavenly goodness tonight; all half-pint of it!
I'm no math geek but I do believe that comes out to $2 a pint. Other organic salsa sells for $4 - $4.25 for 16 oz. Again, I'm no genius but I do believe I just cut the price in half! Plus, I know exactly what went in our salsa! I'm so excited!!! The flavor is unbelievable and I can't wait to eat more tonight - that isn't off the spoon.
Just another post that pinterest is always wasted if it eventually leads to action. I just need to remind my husband of this everytime we open a jar!
