LOOKING for: Salsa Tomatoes

Posted by Cajun_Salsa_Queen (My Page) on

I love making salsa and seem to make it different every time. I grow everything for my salsa in our backyard. After giving away so much salsa last year, and having everyone asking me for my recipe, I decided to write it down this year :) However, the one thing I have yet to prefect in my salsa (in my opinion) is finding the right tomatoes to use. I want a more liquid consistency to the salsa but have never used water. I usually end up having way too much "garden" in the salsa, but everyone else loves it. I want to do it right this year, but have not been able to find what tomato is best for my salsa. Please help if you can!

Roma's-now give us the salsa recipe

RE: LOOKING for: Salsa Tomatoes

I use a mix of whatever tomatoes I have in my garden, Roma, cherry, red and yellow and just whatever is available. Turns out good each time.


RE: LOOKING for: Salsa Tomatoes

Any type of Roma variety of tomatoes should work. Of course, each variety will taste slightly different.

RE: LOOKING for: Salsa Tomatoes

Hmmm. I tend to use any kind EXCEPT Romas and if I have too much "goop" I take some of it out. Romas just don't seem to have much "tomato sweetness". If you want a recipe to can, just search for Annie's Salsa, it's very popular on several of the forums.

I use whatever I have growing in my garden which can be anything from Great White to Rutgers, Bonny Best to Pineapple, Mortgage Lifter to Black Krim. The better your tomatoes taste, the better your salsa will taste.
