A true fresh and wholesome salsa that can easily be altered to suit one's taste. Every year I experiment to come up with different heat factors! There hasn't been a bad batch yet! A very close and dear friend shared this recipe with me a few years back and I have never had to buy the store boughten stuff again.

This is a winner. I decided to try a new salsa recipoe this year and I will be making this one again. I made as stated and used about 1/2 roma and 1/2 regular tomatoes. I used one 8 oz can paste and added about 3 T of sugar to the mix. Great combo of spicy and sweet. DH loved it. I got 9 pints out of the recipe. I think that 8 quarts might be a typo in the servings.
