I used roughly:
big bag of carrots
1 quart of canned whole tomatoes
onions, a lot (I cant remember how many! Maybe 10 or so?)
3 c vinegar
1 c lime juice
1.5 c water
salt to taste
Chop onions and carrots and cook in oil until tender. Add tomatoes and simmer. Make a paste with habaneros in food processor with some liquid. Combine everything except lime juice. Blend well with immersion blender. Heat through and barely simmer for 20 minutes. Add lime juice, put through a food mill, and bottle.

In other news the chickens are getting into the holiday spirit by kicking around some evergreen bough trimmings we picked up from a christmas tree seller. These are woody and will not be breaking down anytime soon but they are a nice bulky, airy bottom to this giant compost pile I'm building for chicken winter entertainment and soil conservation.
