I like this recipe for the taste and because it all fits into my 4 quart crock pot (packed). After the batch is done, I can them into jars for home use and gifts. To make it easier on myself, I use my spiral apple peeler/corer.
This is the best salsa recipe I've found so far and I've tried about a dozen. I got it from one of the local hospital cookbooks that are sold in my area. I changed it a bit and have been canning it for years. The reason I plant a garden is for this salsa. We would be lost without it. Hope you like it as much as we do. One of our members who is a food scientist took this salsa to work, tested the pH and found it measured under 4.0 (well within the safety limit for boiling water bath processing).
I can't really take credit for this recipe. It comes from the instruction sheet that is inside the Sure-Jell box, but it is a tried and true recipe. I love making my own jams and jellies and my family loves eating them.
This recipe was created by my husband Armando (Mondo) who has come up with this recipe after searching for a good hot & spicy pickle and couldn't find one that was spicy enough! People beg for jars of these and my friend Stacey claims that they cure any cold!!HA!
Posted in response to a request. I haven't tried this, but love the idea of using that which would normally be tossed to make something delightful. Cook time is approximate and does not include water bath time.
This is from the Rinn UMC cookbook from a dear lady my family knew well. She was a good scandinavian who loved to cook and feed people. I love this recipe and have a few jars in my pantry all the time. Great for last minute desserts!
When canning any vegetable it is highly recommended that you hot water bath them. Pickles should be boiled in the jars for ten full minutes. If you add more water to the pot, wait until boil starts again to resume timing.
This recipe I found in Ball recipe book Tweaked a lot.I used my vita mix so I didn't need to cook, peel or seed my pears.I just pureed them then cooked with rest of ingredients. If you need to you can peel, seed and cook to soften the pears then puree in food processor. I just like the idea of all the vitamins and fiber I get to have because of this method. The prep time is what it took me from start(fruit) to finish(butter). This can be used on bread, waffles,pour it on a layer of cream cheese for a cracker spread,serve with a pork roast or turkey. Try it straight out of the jar.
