Excellent recipe. BE SURE to skin the tomatoes first, which is so easy to do. Look it up on Youtube. Also, VERY important to know: WEAR LATEX OR RUBBER GLOVES WHEN CHOPPING THE JALAPENO PEPPERS! Although it may seem like common sense, I never made salsa before and didn't think to protect my hands when chopping peppers. Huge mistake and dumb, I know. The burning was so painful that I just couldn't help but cry and cry. It lasted this way for 12 hours. If you make the mistake of not wearing gloves, the only thing that will really help is by soaking your hands in a bowl of ice water, alternating from water to rubbing alcohol. I did this for many hours. It was the only thing that brought relief. BE CAREFUL!

This was the best salsa I have ever made tasted just like the store bought but way better cause it was all fresh.... I let this simmer for 90 mins and only used 1 1/2 cups of jalapeño and used white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar that's all I changed and it came out great... I am going to let set for about 3 weeks to blend all the flavor together more... I got 13 half pints and 1 pint out of this batch I made....

Last fall I canned up six different salsa recipes, and by far, this was the most popular amongst those we shared it with! Every comment was how they loved how hot it was. Since I only had 7# of Roma tomatoes, I made up the remainder by using big boy tomatoes, and added a half bag of frozen corn, along with a can of drained black beans to the recipe. Im not even bothering making any other salsa recipe this year. This year we planted our own ingredients, so there will be a lot made. This was excellent! Thank you for submitting this recipe.

I love this recipe. Never made salsa before and this is great, so fresh tasting! I doubled the batch, it was a lot of work, but boy is it worth it!!! My jalapenos were not hot (which is good) and the salsa turned out perfect for us. Will make another batch soon! Thanks for the recipe!

This is the first time I have ever made Salsa. I followed the directions and my Salsa came out wonderful. I canned 12 half pint jars. All the veggies came out of my home garden. I highly recommend this recipe.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! this recipe... I have canned it twice now the first time I forgot to add the tomato paste but it still turned out great. I add a bit more cilantro because I like the fresh taste it gives the salsa. It is super easy and after a few weeks the flavor really comes together.

Great salsa recipe. I used this for our annual haul of tomatoes and we loved the addition of cilantro and garlic. Our other salsa recipe doesn't include those. We have a new winner. Thank you for sharing with us. I ended up doing 4 batches, should be enough to get us through the winter....yum.

I'm putting 5 stars because I know I messed up. Followed the directions exactly. Mine came out very watery. The directions say to "simmer until desired thickness". I thought it would thicken as I simmered longer. I think I cooked it too long and made into salsa water. How long do you simmer?
