You can add corn, but at that point, you would need to pressure can instead of water bath or steam canning. The acidity needs to be at least 5% I believe to be safe for that method. I have made corn and bean salsa and have to pressure can it. I can’t wait to try this recipe. I love salsa and I am always looking for new ones to try.
Scooped up on a chip or in a taco, peach salsa makes everything taste like summer. It’s also great served with chicken or fish, and since it comes together in a food processor, it really takes almost no time to make. —Shawna Laufer, Ft. Myers, Florida
Looks delicious! I think you are putting them in half-pint jars here, though? But maybe your pint jars just look skinny on the computer screen 😀 if so, disregard. I’m going to add this to my list of things I want to can!
Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then carefully lower the jars into the pot using a holder. Leave a 2 inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary until the water level is at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a full boil, cover the pot, and process for 10 to 15 minutes.
This salsa looks so fresh and delicious! My kids are starving when I pick them up from school. It’s like they are going to shrivel up if they don’t eat right that second!! I wish I had some of this tonight with dinner! 😉
It looks good, fresh, but a little too blended. We like our SALSA chunky! Plus we make 3 different temperatures…SISSY, FIRE IN THE HOLE, AND LAVA JOE!!! Plus you can cook with our salsa as well…spaghetti, chili, red beans and rice to mention a few. Check out After Midnight Salsa online, or on Facebook when you have time…. Great recipe thought Mtn Momma 🙂 Jimmy
Made this today with my remaining garden tomatoes, roasting the tomatoes, garlic, and onions as directed. Within just a few seconds of pulsing in the food processor, the mixture turned to complete soup. I mean, there was just no salvaging a salsa type of consistency out of it. The spices are nice and I’m going to use it to make a cream of tomato soup tomorrow, but wanted to warn others who may be really needing a salsa end product. And maybe you have some tips for ensuring this doesn’t happen?
To blanch tomatoes, place them in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds, until the skins start to split. As soon as the skins start splitting, remove the tomatoes and place them in a cold water/ice water bath. This stops the cooking so they don’t get mushy, and makes them cool enough to handle for peeling. Slip off skins.
How long do you find this will last in the fridge? I’m doing a Fix 21 program and would like to make a batch to add to my meals when I need some variety aside from broccoli (which I do enjoy, just not every night :))
I also believe that roasting your tomatoes and onions gives the salsa a complexity of flavor. I prefer to roast my own tomatoes rather than buy canned roasted tomatoes. It literally only takes minutes. I like to roast the tomatoes just until they start to slightly char. I did choose canned diced chilies in this recipe only because I wanted a milder salsa with a hint of smokiness, but if you want paul newman black bean and corn salsa recipe spicier salsa, leave out the diced chiles and roast a couple of jalapeños along with the tomatoes. Or you can even use both, totally up to you. Keep in mind though that jalapeños can range wildly in heat level, so I would try them before adding them to the salsa.
So. We’ve established that I am a fan of ALL salsas. But if you made me choose my favorite variety, I would have a few criteria: (1) classic tomato salsa (2) with no sugar (I prefer savory salsa, much like I prefer savory corn bread!).
