This is the BEST salsa recipe ever. I added more tomato sauce because we like a smoother, thicker salsa. The flavors blend nicely. My kids can hardly wait for it to be done! I'm thinking about trying to can some in the winter...using canned tomatoes (chopped in food processor). Has anyone tried this yet? Thanks

Simply incredible. BF actually used several expletives to describe how much he loved this salsa (I'll spare everyone the details here)! I'm freezing some of it but we're eating a lot of it so I don't actually know how much will be left to freeze! I used part canned and part fresh tomatoes and half fresh and half pickled jalapenos (lean week for groceries!) and used kosher salt--didn't have any canning salt on hand. Also didn't add any green pepper. And squeezed juice from 1/2 a lemon, then threw the rest in while it was cooking. AWESOME.

This is the best by far! I canned 20 pints in late summer and I have 5 left!! I'll make more next year. UPDATE: I have given this recipe to soooo many people. A keeper!

This really is "Wonderful Salsa"! Canned a batch of it using all my own homegrown veggies, and it made the best tasting salsa I have ever had!!The flavor seems to burst across your tongue.Intense! Even the "heat freaks" in the family loved it!! It was easy to make and easy to can.The only thing I will do differently next time is to not cook it for the entire 10 minutes called for in the original recipe, other than that, everything else will be done the same. This is definitely the only salsa recipe I will use from now on!!!

Great Salsa. I did add 1/4 cup of cilantro, 4 Habanero Peppers and the juice of two limes, but an excellent base for Salsa.

This is the first salsa I've ever canned and my kids LOVED it. I tried it because it got so many good reviews. I left out the sugar and added one-half cup of chopped cliantro. I also added two tablespoons of lime juice to each jar before I added the tomato mixture, then canned it. Figured the lime juice would taste good, plus make my County Extension neighbor happier that it had more acid. It's great, I'm going to make some more. Beats what you get in the store hands down!
