A Little sour but I added sugar. I also used my immersion mixer to smooth it out because it was very chunky even after cooking.
I scaled this recipe to use the 5 pounds of tomatillos that I had on hand. It was supposed to yield 15 pints but produced only five. With the amount of citric acid that the recipe suggested it was way too sour. A complete waste of time and ingredients.
I just made this salsa and loved it. I made a few minor tweaks. I added a chopped up poblano pepper in with the jalapenos, appx 2 tbsp white vinegar, 2 tsp of jalapeno hot sauce, a little extra cilantro and garlic, and replaced the lemon juice with the recommended amount of citric acid per jar, so that it didn't come out too lemony. I really like tart green salsas so I thought it was great. I will be making it again with sarrano peppers so it is a bit hotter. It tastes a lot like the Herdez brand salsa verde that I love, from the store. Easy recipe that allows you to customize just how tart or sweet you want it to be.
This is VERY easy to make. I will never have to buy it in a jar again. I spilled more cumin in it than I intended....and it was good. I like how fresh it tastes.
I had 4# so I doubled the recipe. That was a mistake because this was very bland and waaayyyy too citrusy. So, I added at least another onion, more cilantro another 6-8 garlic cloves and sugar to cut the acidity. And, I added probably a tablespoon of freshly ground cumin, salt, pepper and 7-8 additional Serrano peppers (Total of 10-12.) Then, I got something I could can and subsequently eat.
This was fabulous! I wanted to can my own Salsa Verde to make Chili Verde this winter. This tasted bright and citrusy with medium warmth using jalapenos with the seeds. I mixed 1/2 cup corn starch and 1/2 cup cold water and added during the last 5 minutes of cooking to thicken the salsa up. I also ran out of fresh garlic cloves, so used half fresh and half granulated garlic. Yummmmmm. A keeper!
Thanks a ton! I too did not know what to do with my extremely bountiful harvest of tomatillos. The lemon and lime juice were a bit strong for me as a regular salsa, but I think it will be great as a marinade or sauce with any kind of meat. Or next time I might try to leave out a good deal of the juice and process the jars in a pressure cooker for 20 minutes or so just to be safe. Thanks for sharing!
Great Canning Recipe! Just what I needed.
