Salsa Verde Canning Recipe

Recipe by Mommy Melanie
READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 6 pints




  • After removing husks, halve and then coarsely chop the tomatillos.
  • Lightly coat the bottom of a large pot with oil, turn the burner on high, and add all the ingredients. Stir frequently and bring to a boil. Lower the temperature and let the salsa simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Other recipes call for cumin, oregano, water, oil, lemon thyme, salt, pepper, tarragon, cognac, sugar, tart apples, vinegar, and sweet red peppers. Feel free to add a bit of any or all of these to your salsa before you bring it to a boil.
  • Carefully fill sterilized pint or half-pint jars and process them for 20 minutes using the boiling-water-bath method. (For complete canning directions, she recommends The Big Book of Preserving the Harvest.).
