Salsa to Can

READY IN: 7hrs
Recipe by Tara1183

This is a great recipe, it has been passed to many people who have tried it and what a good recipe to can. Especially one that doesn't need a pressure canner. This makes a medium to mild salsa, it is less spicy when it cools. Add more peppers if you like it really hot.

I made this last week and canned about 10 8 oz jars. I made 3/4 of a recipe since i only had room for 6 qts of tomatoes in my pot. Used about 6 jalepenos, 3 bells, and 3 small onions with the tomatoes. Added a lot less sugar ( I don't like sweet salsa), fresh lime juice, and cilantro. DELICIOUS. Thanks for inspiration
