The spice of life

Happy Saturday folks!

This past week I had the chance to whip up a batch of crazy good  Fire-roasted salsa!! I made two batches from one base. My wife and son cannot stand spicy heat so I make a starter batch with all the ingredients except for hot peppers, I like to add bell peppers to this part so there is some of the flavor but no heat. Once I have the full flavor profile complete I seperate my desired amount that I will add my Hot peppers to. This week I had Habaneros so I used a few of them instead of the Jalapenos called for in the recipe. I like it HOTTT too so I use a few of each type of pepper instead of just 1! I hope you enjoy and remember to spread the word about the club if you like what we do!

How to clean produce

To clean your produce, a few drops of natural dish soap in a sink of water will be enough to wash off anything lurking on your food. Thick-skinned produce can soak a few minutes, leafy greens just need a dip and swish, and thin-skinned produce can be dipped and wiped or soaked quickly. Rinse everything well. Vinegar can turn leafy greens black if it’s used as a veggie wash in too high a concentration, and it might not kill viruses. Soap-based cleaning products will strip the virus of its outer coating and kill it.
