Home Canned Salsa made with fresh tomatoes and chiles
Today a basket of peppers, chilis and tomatoes that someone graciously shared with me became 14 beautiful pints of salsa. The process began with roasting peppers and ended with boiling the pints. All told, it probably took about 3 hours. The herbs and spices were already in the cupboard, as was the tomato paste. Onions were the only ingredient that had to be purchased just for this recipe…and if you are growing them, maybe this will be an almost free thing for you.

Ingredients
  • 6 cups tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup green pepper, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped roasted chili peppers (or you can use 1 small can~ I have done both)
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp vinegar (because tomatoes just aren't acidic enough these days to be completely safe in a boiling bath)
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a huge pot.
  2. Simmer for about 90 minutes.
  3. Pour into clean pint jars. Adjust prepared lids and boil for 15 minutes.

  1. >Looks good we have been canning lots of salsa the last couple weeks! We cannot keep up with all the peppers that our garden is producing! Great job.

  2. >Great job. I'm hoping to start canning next year. I haven't been able to this summer because of our upcoming move. Of course I'm also hoping to have a real garden next summer too. We'll see how it goes.

  3. >Your salsa looks delicious. I've done lots of jams and jellies and pickles, but no tomatoes yet this tear. Soon! Soon! I hope you are having a wonderful day.
