I love salsa!! That is all I plant each year is the ingredients for fresh salsa!! Some times I add black beans and fresh corn…I even added cucumbers once! But in my opinion, no mater which variety I have to have Cilantro!! Found you on Mama Buzz!! Hey I would love it if you stopped by my place and shared your stuff on My 2 favorite Things on Thursday – Link Party!! I would love to have you!!
My Favorite Salsa Ever: The texture is somewhere between chunky and thin. There are lots of small pieces of veggies suspended in the liquid base. I think what makes this really fantastic is the fresh and spicy flavor, similar to pico de gallo. Now I keep a batch in the fridge at all times. Recipe found at Annie’s Eats.
Cook the salsa until it’s nice and hot (boiling), and then follow the instructions I posted yesterday for canning tomatoes to fill and process the jars. If it seems too juicy, you can always boil off some of the water first.

[…] can certainly make you own if you prefer – either use your favorite recipe or check out this Salsa from The Chunky Chef and Guacamole from OMG Food. Even though they are quick and easy, they are still super tasty […]
“My husband and I love fresh salsa, so we decided to try making our own. We just started by adding ingredients, till it tasted the way we wanted. Since then, we have been growing a SALSA GARDEN in the backyard, so we can enjoy our homemade salsa all summer long!!”
OK, OK. Before you walk out the door, hear me out. What if I told you there’s an easier way? Well there is! Nowadays, there are so many kitchen gadgets out there designed to make your cooking experience easier, and hence, more enjoyable.

Oven canning is not recommended. Although the temperature range is similar (or higher in an oven), convective heat transfer (air to jars) does not work as well as conductive heat transfer (water to jars). Odds are you’d damage the sealant on the ring before getting safe internal temperatures throughout the salsa.
Last week my dad made his favorite tomato juice. This week we made and canned some simple tomato and green chile salsa, which I expect will be great to pull out in the middle of winter and munch with some tortilla chips (if the jars last that long, we go through salsa pretty quickly around here.)
And something different: My husband probably wouldn’t let me try this one, because it’s fruit with savory and he doesn’t go for that kind of thing, but Donielle’s cherry tomato salsa looks so intriguing!
So if you typically use romas, how many pounds (approximately) do you need to end up with 10 cups of chopped/peeled/drained tomotoes? I have a (fresh) salsa recipe I love, but your post has me intrigued…
Using canned whole tomatoes eliminates the entire cooking process you would need to do in order to remove majority of the water content. Resulting in more of a tomato based salsa rather than a water based salsa. If you are looking to use fresh tomatoes in a “salsa” recipe check out my Pico de Gallo recipe! Thanks for stopping by!
Please help! My husband and I made one batch of this ridiculously amazing salsa last night. We plan to make another today. We do have some smallish air bubbles in a few jars. Is this a problem? We followed your recipe exactly, but will use our bubble removing tool this time. We can still give these as gifts, right??
Process your salsa for fifteen minutes. When the processing time is over, turn off the heat, remove the lid to the canner or stockpot, and let everything sit for another five minutes. Then, using a jar lifter (or tongs) remove the jars from the canner or stockpot and place them on the towel. Make sure to leave an inch or two of space between the jars to help them cool. Once you’ve set your jars on the towel, do not move them until after they are cool and you have checked the seals – doing so could prevent the lids from sealing properly.
When I finally did find my favorite salsa for canning, there was no going back – every August and September I make enough batches to see us through to the next season. Store-bought canned salsa can’t hold a candle to this!
Nope. The tomatoes have enough liquid https://great-salsa.com/blog/ them already. You want to drain them before cooking, and then cook them long to get rid of as much liquid as possible. This is what gives the end salsa such a good thick consistency. Glad you asked Lise.
Thanks Theresa. People have been canning with your mom’s method for many years. And it probably does work well for your family. But it is not a recommended as safe process from the food safety police as it provides for a chance of bacteria growth in your canned jars. For legal reasons, I can’t recommended any process not blessed by the local food extensions. Sure you understand that. But I appreciate you sharing with me.
