This makes about 3 pints, I store it in the refrigerater, The longer it sits the hotter it gets. With this recipe you always have salsa in the refrigerator.

This is Excellent, but only thought so after it sat for about a week. It was ok at first, but for some reason after a week it was to-die-for! I love anything with a vinegar base, so this is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

This is a great recipe, I substituted one cup of jalapeno for red bell pepper which adds color and takes some of the heat out. This exact recipe is also in the Ball Blue Book of preserving on page 79. Excellent finished product, not too hot for the wife.

Need to put a warning on this...Don't make if you don't like HOT! It was very easy to make. I did cut back a little on the jalapeno peppers and added a few more tomatoes. I got 4 pints which I processed in my water bath canner.
