We made a very scaled down version of this today. The purpose was to see if this was a good tasting salsa for this years canning. Well, we WILL be canning this!! It is SO good. We did leave the seeds out, because we don't like it real hot. We were looking for flavor, and we found it. This is delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!!

This recipe has way too much vinegar! If I try it again I will use 1/2 c. of regular vinegar, not cider. I am surprised people liked this recipe.

This is a great salsa recipe! Everyone who tried it loved it! I let it simmer on very low a longer than an hour and the vinegar taste mellows. I also added a little more sugar. This a keeper in my family, for sure!

Beautiful Salsa - -a little on the vinegary side, but nothing a little adjustment can't fix. Used Orange Hybrid tomatoes also to add a little extra color.

I have been canning this salsa for the past couple years with rave reviews. All my friends want to recipe. I use only a cup or so of jalapeno peppers and use hot banana pepppers for the rest of my "heat". I sometimes use sweet banana peppers in place of some of the green and red peppers - just whatever is growing good in the garden. Thanks for a great recipe!

I scaled this right down, and found that it was far too vinegary. Almost metallic. Maybe when scaling down to have to reduce the proportion of vinegar even further, but I think it could've done with about half of what I put in. It was pretty much all I could taste.

I thought this might be too sweet but when my friends came over they loved it. I didn't have any jalapeno peppers but I did have a few habanero peppers. I was too scared to use more than one but afterwards I felt like I could have used two. This wasn't too spicy. Next time I will use some cilantro too because everyone I know likes it. Thanks for helping me use up my millions of tomatoes.
