I have been making this salsa for years. My friends and family (recipients of my gift baskets) love it. I use it on white fish or just with tortilla chips. To freshen it up mid-winter, I sometimes add diced fresh mango.
I had never cooked a salsa before, so I was a little skeptical when I tried this recipe. It turned out surprisingly good. Didn't find fresh peaches at this time of the year, so I used canned peaches. I also substituted lemon juice for the vinegar and only added a few drops of honey. It was sweet enough for us. Very good recipe!
A little too much vinegar for my taste. I usually add lime and wish I had done that instead.
This salsa is really good. I used six jalapenos with the seeds for the heat. I did not use fresh cilantro so I cut the amount in half. I didn't have cumin so I threw in a little chili powder instead along with a little salt. I also wanted a bit more of a sweet flavor so I added 1/2 cup sugar. This stuff is amazing with tortilla chips!!! A definite keeper!!!
Oh, Uncle Bill, this is fabulous stuff and so easy to make. Made some last season and only had one pint left by August, so this season, (2012) I doubled the recipe and got 12 pints to take us through the winter. So yummy! My whole family loves this salsa. We eat it with tortilla chips on taco night. Thanks for sharing! You have wonderful recipes on this site!
Very good salsa and so versatile. Had it with chips last night and had it over a poached egg/sauteed spinach breakfast this morning. Added a little more heat with red pepper flakes. Used mint in place of cilantro. The recipe made a little more that 8 half pints for me. Easy to make; delicious to eat. Thanks for the recipe!
Super salsa! Perfect balance of flavours.. nice spice, not too sweet, perfect replacement for regular tomato salsa. I'm not a big fan of cilantro, but I used it anyways, and glad I did. The taste was suttle. Thank you so much for this recipe.. I will try to make it every year when peaches are in season!
I quadrupled this recipe because of all the rave reviews. It was a lot of work but It was very good in the end. I made the recipe exactly as written except cut down on the jalapenos to 10-12 rather than 16 (because I 4x it). The only thing I would do next time is add more tomatoes and some salt (not sure how much though). I would also wear gloves when cutting jalapenos. My hands were on fire the rest of the day. So far, people I have had try it, have really enjoyed it.
WOW!! just canned this salsa two days ago, & it was awesome, just the right bite to it, but only got 4 pints. I will do another batch & double it this time for gifts. It also would be great as a Chinese chicken dish over rice, kinda like the Hot orange chicken dish, (that is what it reminded me of anyway:) Thanks for posting this recipe...
I just made a huge pot of this salsa and I am so happy. I still have a bunch of peaches left and will go out tomorrow and get more of the ingrediants to make another batch
