This is by far the best recipe I have made for salsa!!!! My family loves it, It has a little zest at first but after a few days it is a medium salsa!!!

This recipe is wonderful. I modified it slightly by skipping the jalapeños and adding Mrs. Wages dry salsa seasoning mix (just enough to suit your taste). I then add the jalapeños til I get the heat I want.

Great recipe!! Made two batches- followed the recipe exactly for the first batch and it is wonderful. Second time around I omitted the sugar and used sweet onions instead of white, also added 1/4 cup cilantro. I like the second batch more. Also- I processed mine for 20 minutes (15 lid on, 5 lid off). Thank you so much for a recipe I'll use for years to come!

We have an over abundance in the garden this year so I decided to try salsa. This truly is wonderful salsa. I picked it based upon all the good reviews and I'm planning on making a third batch tomorrow. I didn't really deviate from the recipe. I did take the seeds out of the peppers because we don't like it too hot. Thank you!

Very easy, thick and chunky salsa with mild heat. Used a small can of tomato paste and a smaller can of tomato sauce and 2 tbsp of sugar. Tastes very much like the best bottled salsa from the store. Next time I will omit sugar, out tomatoes from the vine were sweet, increase vinegar for that nice bite, add coriander and a hot pepper..and maybe corn or chipotle. Great base to work with, so much can be done with this! Thanks! BTW, this went so fast it never did get bottled :)

Recipe is awesome! I added black beans and corn to mine, PHENOMENAL! I used mostly ingredients from my garden and it came out pretty spicy I'd say medium-hot using the cup of jalapenos. I canned two quarts then added the black beans and corn, which made another two. I'll definitely be using this recipe again, maybe add pineapple or grill the veggies first for the next one (=

This is a great recipe. I will modify my second batch with some real hot peppers - ghost peppers I have grown and apples to sweeten instead of sugar. If it is still too hot from the peppers just add more tomatoes. Enjoy, I love making salsa and do it every year.

Best salsa recipe ever. I used all veggies from my garden, except organic onion and organic garlic. I added 6 green habaneros, cause they weren't orange yet. I also only used 1 tbsp sugar because garden tomatoes are sweet. This is seriously good. I canned 6 pints a week ago. I am now making another batch with more habaneros. This will stay in my canning recipe book. Try it, you be addicted.

I intended on canning this and made this before going to the store for both the tomato sauce and paste (and cilantro which I always love in salsa). We however, loved this so much that there wasn't enough left to even bother jarring. I used lime juice instead of vinegar (personal preference). This was so fresh and delicious, I will make it again as instructed (reducing the sugar by half) and then one more time; making half with mango and half a little hotter. Great way to use up the jalapenos, onions, and tomatoes in the garden. This is such a flavorful and excellent recipe. Thanks for sharing!
