My other kitchen project this weekend was making fresh salsa. I've been growing habaneros all summer, and they've been ripening just the weather starts to turn. All summer, I've been trying to figure out what I'd do with them, and I decided I'd start with the obvious.
Fresh ripe tomatoes, poblano and habanero peppers, lime juice and salt, roughly chopped in a food processor. It reminds me a little of Herdez brand, back with it was still Hecho en Mexico™. But the fresh tomatoes (I got them yesterday from the farmer's market) make all the difference. It has a wonderful sweetness, with some astringency from the onion. I'd like to think the habaneros contributed to the taste. They definitely added some heat, and I think I'd have enjoyed it more with jalapeño levels of capsaicin. Will tone that down and add some cilantro when I make again, before the tomato season is over.
