Canning Salsa

I have a garden with lots of tomatoes. This year I would like to make salsa. I need a good recipe for one and can I put it up in jars, like I normally would regular tomatoes. I do the boiling of jars and lids (old fashioned way.) Please hurry so I can get started. I also have jalapenos, banana peppers as well.


Thanks a bunch.


Canning Salsa

This is my favorite salsa recipe, I've used for the last 15 years. 8-10 ripe tomatoes (I have used 2 qts of my home canned tomatoes.)

  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 3 green or red bell peppers chopped
  • 2 cans diced green chili peppers
  • 5 jalapenos,seeded or not. You can make salsa as mild or as hot as you like.
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 6oz can tomato paste
  • 2 cloves crushed crushed garlic
  • 2 tsps ground chili powder
  • 2 tsps sugar or artificial sweetener
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsps chopped fresh cilantro

Combine all ingredients in a large non- aluminum pot,bring to a boil, stirring often. turn heat down and simmer for 30 minutes. Pour into hot sterilized jars.

Process in water bath 20 minutes. Makes about 5 pints.

If you use this recipe, I hope you like it as much as I do. Ettamae (08/13/2005)

I needed something quick also, so I tried the Mrs. Wages salsa mix from Walmart. To my surprise it turned out very good. It says to scald tomatoes for 3 minutes, but I found this to be too long. Just boil tomatoes until the skin splits so that it will come off easy. I have made 3 batches so far. One pkg. makes about five pints. (08/14/2005)

I agree that Mrs. Wages is surprisingly good and so easy. I suggest you give it a try! (08/23/2005)
