Mama's Salsa Recipe

READY IN: 12hrs 45mins
YIELD: 7 pints




  • Sprinkle pickling salt over chopped tomatoes and onions and let stand overnight.
  • In the morning drain all liquid from the veggies and place the veggies in a large stock pot.
  • To the pot add the vinegar, sugar and crushed red pepper.
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 45 minutes.
  • Add chopped green peppers, minced garlic cloves and tomato paste and boil for 20 minutes.
  • Pour into hot sterilized jars and place in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
  • NOTE: To make Sweet & Hot Salsa I removed all of the garlic cloves, reduced the green peppers to 1 1/2 cups & used 1/2 tablespoon ground (cayenne) red pepper instead of the crushed red pepper. Just a few simple changes but the flavor is amazing!
