    Lil'Sis's Note:

    I love this salsa! The taste is all your choice; add more or less of spices, salt, and vegetables! I use pint size mason jars and water bathe the jars, so that I get fresh salsa through out the year!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    pints

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 quarts tomatoes, chopped (about 14-15lbs of tomatoes, depending on size. Yes, this is a lot of tomatoes, but it will make abou)
    • 9 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/3 cup lime juice
    • 3 teaspoons pickling salt (more of less for taste)
    • 2 teaspoons cumin (more of less for taste)
    • 1 tablespoon oregano (optional, more of less for taste)
    • chili pepper (more of less for taste)
    • 1/3 cup cilantro, snipped (more of less for taste)
    • 1/3 cup jalapeno
    • 3 large onions, once red, yellow, and white

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare tomatoes. Boil in hot water 1-2 minutes, then dump into a cold water bath. Peel skins and chop up all tomatoes into bite size pieces. The liquid will cook down and so will the size of the pieces.
    2. 2
      Start cooking tomatoes(not in stainless steel pot) let it come to a rolling boil, then reduce to a simmer.
    3. 3
      With a measuring cup, take out any excess liquid from the tomatoes. I usually take out the liquid 4-5 times before starting to add any vegetables. I let it simmer for over an hour, so I can let all the juices cook out.
    4. 4
      Once you have the consistency you want, add the vegetables. Start with diced garlic, cumin, salt, lime juice, oregano, and cayenne pepper. Let these seasonings cook in and try a few taste test to alter if needed.
    5. 5
      Next, add cilantro, jalapenos, and 3 onions. Let the mixture cook for as long as you'd like. I usually let it sit and simmer again for another hour to let the jalapenos cook inches.
    6. 6
      Prepare your water-bath. Let it come to a rolling boil. Wash out and rinse your jars. Then set them into the water-bath for 10 minutes, for sterilization!
    7. 7
      Once jars are sterile, fill them with salsa, leaving 1/2in head space. Wipe rims, add lids and rings.
    8. 8
      Place jars back into water bath and set timer for 15 minutes.
