Jana's Home Canned Picante Sauce

"A typical Tomato Salsa. Vary the heat by varying the jalapenos. The recipe produces mild Salsa. Home made salsas tend to be more watery than commercial varieties. To "tighten" the salsa, you can drain the chopped tomatos before mixing all ingredients. You can also include a Tablespoon of flour mixed with cold water if you like."

    I have been looking for a canned salsa recipe like this with little vinegar for my husband. How many minutes for canning in a hot water bath instead of the pressure canner?

    This is a fabulous recipe!! The flavors are very balanced, absolutely delicious! The only change I would make next time is to add less tomato juice. I ended up cooking mine for about an hour to get it thick and finally skimmed about 3 cups of liquid off the top to get it the right thickness to can. My jalepenos were pretty large so I only used 3, seeds and all. Had just the right amount of heat for me. I also used about 8 large tomatoes from my garden. This made 4 16 ounce jars.
