We made 32 pints of this salsa on Labor Day. Definitely would make good Christmas presents. I posted a picture on my Facebook page and credited you for the amazing results. We live in Jerome, Idaho and still have many tomatoes in the garden so may make another batch. The instructions and pictures are great.

Sadly, I just put up all my hot peppers yesterday so there won’t be any salsa for me. But I am printing and stashing this recipe for next fall when I’m up to my eye teeth in peppers and tomatoes again. Love the change to smoked paprika – it’s one of my favorite little game changers in chili and Mexican rice. Really beautiful photo (you know I watch those) and did I hear there’s a new bowl coming??

I made this today without the salt due to a low sodium diet restriction. I think it tastes good without it, really fresh. I’m letting it set for another day in refrigerator before indulging. Thanks for the recipe!

It only takes one to two pulses to get the perfect {in my opinion} salsa. Not too runny… not too thick and chunky. Now either eat right on the spot or place it in the fridge for whenever you’re ready to serve.

This sounds and looks amazing. I was hoping to get enough tomatoes off of my plants this year to make salsa but it was not meant to be. If I can find some good looking tomatoes I’m going to make some of this. We love salsa around here.

It’s been some time since you posted this, but I wanted to add my thanks to the others. I love this! My son is a salsa fiend, and this has been fantastic for snacks and munchies. I also put it on chicken, fish… really, anything. Fabbo. Thank you!

This salsa is fantastic! We made over 40 jars of it this summer, just varying the heat based on which peppers were maturing in the garden. We shared many jars with friends and family, but now my husband is jealously guarding the last dozen jars! Thanks for a really exceptional recipe!

Niki, sorry for my delayed reply. I’ve been on vacation and away from connectivity. The cilantro is strictly for flavor so leave it out if you don’t like it. As for the celery, a little should be fine. Too much will change the Ph, which could mean unsafe storage. Just add a little extra lime or lemon juice to compensate.

I can’t wait to try this recipe! The only thing that confuses me is where you say to omit the jalapeño seeds to help reduce the heat. I learned from a show all about different types of peppers. It said The heat actually comes from between the skin and the fruit.

IMPORTANT: Follow the directions carefully for each recipe. Use the amounts of each vegetable listed in the recipe. Add the amount of vinegar or lemon juice listed. You may change the amount of spices, if desired. Do not can salsas that do not follow these or other research tested recipes. (They may be frozen or stored in the refrigerator). Do not thicken salsas with flour or cornstarch before canning. Thickening makes it harder for the contents to reach the right temperature during processing and impacts safety. After you open a jar to use, you may pour off some of the liquid, add tomato paste or thicken with cornstarch. reference: Reference: the University of Missouri.

Why bottled lemon or lime juice? Bottled juice is uniformly acidic, something that’s important for food safety. Foods like salsa that are canned in a water bath do not reach the temperature of pressure-canned foods, and thus rely on things like lemon or lime juice (or vinegar) to raise the acidity to a level that prevents the growth of botulism. So do NOT skip this ingredient!

On the buffet, I https://great-salsa.com/about-us/ an inviting bowl of salsa sitting sitting next to a big bowl of tortilla chips. Bright, fresh, colorful and chunky I raced for a chip to scoop up a bite. Just as I thought…fabulous.  I sought out host, Sandra, to ask her the brand and where to purchase it. To my delight she replied that it was her own recipe and she had made it herself. And best of all, she shared the recipe with me.

Toss the squeezed (Squozen? 🙂 tomatoes into a colander or drainer, while you work on others. This helps more of the water to drain off.  You may want to save the liquid: if you then pass it through a sieve, screen or cheesecloth, you have fresh tomato juice; great to drink cold or use in cooking!
