Super Moon Salsa

Raspberry Peach-Man Jam!
Moonrise over Elmira Pond is a success since we lack the normal cloud cover of the region. A lingering hawk greets the moon, harassed by pine siskins or perhaps chipping sparrows, maybe cat bird. They flit too fast for proper identification. The hawk watches as I harvest tarragon  for an inspired batch of Super Moon Salsa. Basically, it's a way to use up refrigerator produce and ripe peaches from the Peach Man. This is what the recipe turns out to be:

Super Moon Salsa

4 small white onions, finely chopped
3 vine ripened tomatoes, finely chopped
2 limes, juiced
9 tree ripened peaches, finely chopped
1 orange bell-pepper, finely chopped
2 sprigs of fresh tarragon, finely chopped
Heavy sprinkling of dried Aleppo pepper
Salt to taste (Real or Himalayan)

Chop, juice, mix and pour into jars. Refrigerate and serve within two weeks with corn chips or gluten-free Nut Thins (try smearing a tad of cream cheese on the Nut Thins first).

Enjoy the photos of the moon, the hawk and raspberry-peach-man jam!
