Catching Myself

The last of the tomatoes from our CSA arrived a while ago.  I have been making a lot of salsa the end of this season.  The recipe my family enjoys is from the Moosewood Cookbook.  Here it is:

Tomato Salsa (1 1/2 to 2 cups)

3 medium-size ripe tomatoes
2 scallions, finely minced
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
a handful of parsley, finely minced
a handful of cilantro, finely minced
1 tsp. lightly toasted cumin seeds
3/4 to 1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
crushed red pepper, to taste

Drop the tomatoes into a potful of simmering water for 10 seconds. Take them out, pull off the skins, and squeeze out the seeds. Dice the remaining pulp. Combine everything in a small bowl. Cover tightly and chill. (Note: to toast the cumin seeds, use a small skillet over a low flame or toaster oven. With either method, watch them carefully so they won’t scorch.)

What is a great fall recipe you would like to share?  (or…if you are in the southern hemisphere…a spring recipe?)

Today’s article is the “recipe” I use to walk myself through the panic…and into the calm.
