Salsa

by on Monday, September 7, 2015

I just made a batch of this salsa last week, and we are currently on the last jar!

8 cups of tomatoes peeled and chopped (drain liquid for a chunky salsa)

2 1/2 cups of chopped sweet onions

1 1/2 cups of green peppers

1 cup jalapenos ( Wear gloves!!)

6 garlic cloves, minced

2 teaspoons cumin

2 tsp pepper

1/8 cup canning salt

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup vinegar

1 15 ounce can of tomato sauce

1 12 ounce can of tomato paste

3 tbsp of fresh cilantro added in the last five minutes of cooking, I used 1 1/2 tbsp and only added to half the batch.

Mix all ingredients together (except cilantro if you decide to use it), bring to a slow boil for 35 mins.  Add to sterilized jars and cook in a hot water bath for ten minutes.

For a hotter salsa leave the seeds and rinds in the jalapenos, I left about 3/4 in mine and I would say mine turned out to be a nice medium heat.
