I love making salsa. It is normally really easy and so delicious!! This recipe is no exception. I have also been trying can. And salsa is such an easy thing to make that I can focus on the canning. But I can’t imagine how much I would have to can to keep me in salsa for the whole year! Wow, I am so impressed by anyone who actually cans everything they need of any staple food item.
I also was able to use my new canning book, Put ‘Em Up! by Sherri Brooks Vinton. I love this book. It is organized by type of food and it has a ton of different type of preserving techniques in it. I can’t wait to share more recipes with you as I learn how to use them all!!
Super Easy Salsa
This recipe is adapted from Put ‘Em Up! by Sherri Brooks Vinton
- 1 cup distilled white vinegar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 3 pounds tomatoes, seeded and diced
- 1-2 jalapeno peppers, finely diced
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1. Bring the vinegar, sugar, and salt to a boil in a large nonreactive saucepan. Add the tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos, and return to a boil for 5 minutes. Add the cilantro and remove from heat.
2. Use the boiling water method to can. Ladle the salsa into clean, hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Release trapped air. Wipe the rims clean; center lids on the jars and screw on jar bands. Process for 15 minutes. Turn off heat, remove canner lid, and let jars rest in the water for 5 minutes. Remove jars and set aside for 24 hours. Check seals, then store in a cool dark place for up to 1 year.
