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.

9/29/08 I doubled this recipe but only used 3 1/2 cups of jalapenos as I did not want it to be too hot for us. It is really good right now and I did not notice the vinegar in it. I'll crack a jar open in a few weeks and report back again. Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2008* game
