Fruity & Spicy Salsa
Unlike most store bought salsas this one has a fresh, fruity, and a spicy kick to it. Well paired with almost anything. Inspired by mole I created this salsa with apples, prunes, tomatoes, and chilies. Bottle up for your condiment stash in the refrigerator and make it a go to salsa for every meal.
3 guajillo Peppers
3 dried prunes
1 apple, tart, pealed
5-6 whole tomatoes (San Marzano Whole Peeled Tomatoes), from a can
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon Mexican oregano, crushed
It a stock pot fill 2 cups of water, bring to a boil. Shut off the heat and add the guajillo peppers and dried prunes. Allow to sit until soft.
Take a blender carafe and add the apple, tomatoes, garlic and softened guajillo peppers and prunes with 1 cup of their liquid. Blend everything until a smooth consistency. Pour into a pot and simmer to reduce for 15 minutes on medium heat. Add the oregano, cumin and salt to taste if needed. Once cooled add to a jar and keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy!
