Jana's Home Canned Picante Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by gahboo

A typical Tomato Salsa. Vary the heat by varying the jalapenos. The recipe produces mild Salsa. Home made salsas tend to be more watery than commercial varieties. To "tighten" the salsa, you can drain the chopped tomatos before mixing all ingredients. You can also include a Tablespoon of flour mixed with cold water if you like.
