Good Hot Garden Salsa

On how to make good hot garden salsa.

I have such a good garden this year,I think we have canned around 48 pints of good hot garden salsa alone.

I have used Beef eater tomatoes,Cherries Tomatoes and Pear Tomatoes combined to make all this delicious salsa.

Tools you will need are:

  • 1 Big Pot for a water bath or water bath canner which has racks that hold the jars upright.
  • 1 Big pot for boiling the ingredients.
  • 1 Ladle
  • 1 funnel
  • 1 vegetable grinder-chopper.
  • 1 Tablespoon
  • 1 Teaspoon
  • Pint Canning Jars
  • Lids
  • Seals
  • Tongs for removing jars from canner.

Vegetables needed

2 Quarts of tomatoes

1/4 cup vinegar

1 large onion chopped

1 red bell pepper

1 yellow bell pepper

1 green bell pepper

3 garlic cloves,chopped

5 jalapeno peppers chopped

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon oregano

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Tomato paste on hand for thickening agent.

Preparation Time;

Mix all the ingredients together and let set over night in refrigerator.

Check the thickness and if to runny mix in tomato paste to thicken.

Bring ingredients to a rolling boil .

Ladle into clean hot pint jars.

Clean the rims of jars and place seals on.

Tighten down the seals with the rings snug.

Place in canner and cook at a boil for 25 minutes.

After 25 minutes,remove from the canner with jar tongs and place on a bath towel and let seal.

Nothing like hearing the seals pop when they seal.

If you have one that doesn't seal,you can eat when cool or recook it.

After cooling you have some good hot garden salsa to snack on or cover those fried potatoes with.

Now you can enjoy your good hot garden salsa.

      I read somewhere awhile back that Hummus and Salsa were two of the healthiest foods you could eat.

      Yours sounds like one of the best!
