Basic salsa is pretty easy. It's just chili peppers, sweet peppers, tomato and onion. Basic salsa doesn't require any spices, the chili peppers take care of that.Does anybody have any good salsa recipes that they would like to share with me? Thanks!
I almost posted the other day about Walmart but thought maybe it was just my Walmart that had canning supplies on clearance. I bought the large canning pot about $10 off and some lids on clearance. It was a clearance aisle not in the homegoods section.About this time of year walmart will be putting on clearance all or most of there canning supplies. We usually pick up the Ball Salsa mix packets for $.25 a piece. The recipe there is a good one, we add some SUGAR to it and believe it or not it comes out really well.
Also, they'll be reducing the jars from $9. a case to $5. and lids down to $1.
This is a great recipe, I made this this morning & I got 7 pints out of it, but I use 8 1/2 cups(only because I had 1/2 cup extra tomato's), so I just dumped it in with the rest....I also omitted the sugar, & may have to cut down on the Peppers .. but still was a great recipe..thank for the post will be making more of this later...this recipe is for canning and is awe some!
8 cups tomatoes, peeled, chopped and drained
2 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 1/2 cups chopped green pepper
3 - 5 chopped jalapenos
6 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp pepper
1/8 cup canning salt
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup vinegar (for BWB or 1/3 cup vinegar for PC)
16 oz. tomato sauce
16 oz tomato paste
Mix all ingredients, bring to a boil, boil 10 minutes. Pour into hot
jars, process at 10 lbs of pressure for 30 minutes for pints. Or WB
Makes 6 pints
if you don't like sweet salsa omit the sugar
I preferred to use lemon juice rather then vinegar
3-5 jalapenos is a medium hot salsa.
It is easy to WB = water bath can .. put jars in a stock pot with a lid. cover jars with water.. 1" over top.... boil and start counting once boiling for 15 minutes. Just ask me to make it clear if you have never canned before.
thanks for the info...will be making more next week...Never cook your salsa, and for better flavor try roasting the peppers first specially the poblano ones and tomatoes should be ripe also removed the tomatoes skins. Let the salsa rest for a few hours before using it will help with the flavor.
