Local Food: Classy Sassy Salsa

Mmmm, salsa! Received my first order of Classy Sassy Salsa from David DiMartino a couple days ago. I ordered a jar of Dave's Chunky Style Salsa and a jar of the Sassy Habanero Salsa both made from the tomatoes in the DiMartino's garden in Spring Valley. The salsas passed the taste test with flying colors, although I liked the chunky style best. The habanero could be a bit spicier, but it had a good flavor just the same.

I've registered for David's canning class on September 22 at the Super Saturday Event sponsored by the Foothill Adults Center in El Cajon. Anyone want to join me?

Sure wish I could join you for that canning class. They've probably come up with some improvements since I started canning 30 years ago!

I've finally chosen and paid for a trial membership for a CSA -- feel free to check out their blog:

I do wonder about organic farming when the land is leased. If the folks before you weren't organic, then it doesn't really mater what you do -- the chemicals would still be in the soil -- right?!

I don't know this for certain, but I'm fairly confident that the soil must meet certain criteria in order to be certified organic. By planting certain crops the balance can be corrected and it is possible to return it from an artifical-chemical state.

When we moved to South Africa fourteen years ago, I gave my canning supplies to a woman in our church. She called this morning to say that she never used them, just moved them from place to place, and would I like them back. It looks like I'm back in the canning business!
