Southern Mamas rule the roost in our households, so it's no surprise that this homemade salsa recipe from Southern trio Point of Grace is aptly titled Shelley's Mom's Salsa. Perfect for your appetizer table, this simmered salsa pairs beautifully with tortilla chips. Grab a few Mason jars and some festive ribbon, and you've got yourself an easy hostess gift. This recipe, showcased by Leigh, Shelley, and Denise, comes from the cookbook Cooking With Grace: A Cookbook From Point Of Grace. According to the bandmates, they give out this salsa as Christmas gifts every year to rave reviews. The recipe combines canned tomatoes, white vinegar, a chopped onion, chopped jalapeños, salt, cumin, coriander, and fresh garlic. Puree your tomatoes in a blender for a few seconds, and then add with your remaining ingredients into a Dutch oven. Simmer your salsa for about 30 minutes on the stove. While your salsa is cooking, you can dress up a few jars as the vessels for your gift. Send along with a charming whisk or a bag of tortilla chips, and you've got a gift idea that's both unexpected and delicious.
