very good salsa. Do not put tomatoes in cuisinart. they get too chopped up. I like my salsa a little thicker, so I will drain some liquid when using. otherwise good.

My husband had never canned until now. This Salsa recipe was excellent. Just the right amount of peppers for heat. We omit the salt for heart reasons. This is excellent. Great flavor.

Simple ingredients, easy to make and VERY flavorful! We used heirloom tomatoes from our garden (Bloody Butchers, Marglobes and a few Mortgage Lifters). Also used lemon and lime juice instead of just lemon juice otherwise we followed the recipe as given. We made a little more than 7 pints (canned) and also had a bit left over to enjoy fresh. <br/><br/>We hand chopped everything because we like our salsa a bit more chunky than you'd get with the food processor. Also recommend using a slotted spoon to drain off the extra liquid when putting it in jars for canning. <br/><br/>Thanks for sharing the recipe. Just goes to show you that delicious food doesn't have to be complicated . We'll definitely make more before the end of the gardening season!

Just a comment. Several people have asked in the Q & A forum if the cup of lemon juice is necessary. It definitely is, as tomato varieties now lack the acid that tomatoes used to have, and it's not considered safe to can them without an acidifying agent such as bottled (not fresh) lemon juice. You could use vinegar or citric acid, but lemon juice tastes better and citric acid is not as easy to find as lemon juice is. This is similar to a recipe I have used, which is really tasty with the lemon juice.

This is an excellent recipe! I made a 'regular' batch and a 'hotter' batch(with habeneros, more jalapenos, and salsa peppers)!! Easy to adjust the heat that way & great both ways! Thanks for sharing the recipe!! I will for sure can this again!!
