Gator Salsa

10 pounds ripe tomatoes
2 1/2 pounds green bell peppers, diced
12 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
3 habanero peppers, seeded and minced
1 pound green chile peppers, diced
1 1/2 pounds onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons white sugar
4 tablespoons ground black pepper
4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Bring a large saucepan filled 2/3 full with water to boil. Blanch tomatoes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Peel and chop.

Place tomatoes in a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer.

In a separate large saucepan, bring approximately 2 quarts lightly salted water to boil. Place green bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, habanero chile peppers, green chile peppers, onions and garlic in the boiling water. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes.

Drain vegetables and stir into saucepan with tomatoes. Mix in white sugar, ground black pepper and chopped fresh cilantro. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in more water if necessary to attain desired consistency.

Transfer the finished salsa to sterile containers, and store in the refrigerator until serving.

Salsa Tip: Once you have made your salsa, it is best not to serve it immediately. Store the salsa in a sealed container in your refrigerator for two or more hours. Overnight is even better. This allows the different flavors in the salsa to blend creating a much better flavor.
