Frugal Winter Canned Salsa

This is a recipe I came up with when wanting to make salsa in the winter and give them as gifts too! Makes about 8 250ml jars! This recipe cost me about $6 which means a gift salsa jar costs me 75 cents if I used recycled jars (which I did!)


For canning, you can use most commercial pasta and salsa jars. As long as the jar has a pop top (when you press in the middle of the lid, it pops), then you can use it for canning. I save all my jars so I can do this.


  • 5 cans 28 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 3 onions
  • 1 tsp chili sauce or hot sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 green peppers - diced small
  • 1 jalepeno pepper (optional)


Put all the ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil then heat on med-low for 30 minutes. Place in canning jars and process in hot water bath for 10 minutes.
