I love a fire roasted tomato/pepper/onion salsa. You might add a bit of salt, olive oil and cilantro, maybe a bit of pickling vinegar to adjust the acid level. It is hard for me to follow a recipe on this, I just add a little of this, more of that, and a pinch of that till it tastes right. I realized that the majority of my tomatoes this year are a paste variety and seem to make a different salsa texture, than I prefer. For me a salsa with tomato, peppers and onions with a clear-ish juice tastes more like what I want. The "perfect" salsa is such a personal choice...
PS when "fire roasting" you want to blacken the skins of everything then wrap in plastic wrap or a damp towel and "sweat" the skins off. If a little bit of black stuff stays on, ohwell it gives a smokey flavor. Just add the tomatoes to a large pot and continue to heat till boiling adding the misc. ingrediants along the way, when it tastes right and is all boiling jar up and boiling water bath for 10-15 min. I am not even sure that is necessary but you may want to just in case. Don't forget to make sure it is pretty acidic adjust with only a couple of table spoons at a time till it tastes right.

This is my favorite so far for salsa. I like it mild, so I only put a little cayenne in it and only a few jalapenos. I processed it in a water bath canner and we are still eating some from last summer.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
