ITS THAT TIME OF YEAR!  THE GARDEN IS ON, AND WE HAVE TOMATOES GALORE!

Salsa is one of our family favorites so I plant a BIG garden every year.  This year the garden seamed to come in all at once. 

~ I like salsa to have a little kick behind it, and over the years we have made several different types.  This recipe is our favorite! ~

Salsa Recipe

Makes 7-9 pints

  • 10 cups peeled, cored, chopped tomatoes
  • 4 cups chopped onion
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 6 cups seeded, chopped chilies* (4 green peppers, 6 jalapenos, 6 Serrano, 3 Anaheim)
  • 2 bottles chili sauce
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

* Use a mixture of mild and hot chillies

Combine all ingredients into a large saucepan.  Heat to a boil and simmer 10 minutes. Ladel hot salsa into pint jars, leaving 1/2-inch space at top.

Adjust lids and process in a boiling water canner; 15 minutes at 0-1,000 feet altitude, 20 minutes at 1,001-6000 feet; 25 minutes about 6,000 feet!

Since its still 90 degrees outside we do all of our canning outdoors!  My parents have a couple of two burner stoves so we are able to do a few pots at a time!

This stove they have has been tried and true, and has been used very regularly for at least 10  years, but there is a new and improved version!  The Explorer two burnerstove! It is great for canning just about anything.
