Put all of the ingredients in your blender. Adding the tomatoes first makes it much easier to blend. Do not add water unless it won’t blend and then only add 2 tablespoons of water at a time. Most of the time you won’t have to add any. Too much water makes the salsa runny. You want a full-bodied slightly chunky tomato salsa.
Transfer to a large, heavy-bottomed pot, bring to a simmer, and then reduce the heat to the point where the sauce maintains a slow simmer (uncovered). Stir in the olive oil, salt, oregano, and sugar, and let simmer for 60-90 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the sauce has thickened nicely.
Took ten minutes to throw together. I put it all in the blender together and whizzed it for about 30 seconds just to mix it all thoroughly and more combined. I served with chicken fajitas – absolutely gorgeous!  –  08 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

Is it possible to can a home made cioppino made with tomato based vegetable juice cocktail,tomato paste,onions, garlic, herbs, wine olive oil, and various fish and shellfish. It has been cooked before freezing. Need the space in our 5th wheel freezer before we head south. Thank you for your time. Enjoyed tour web site mucho.Will be back BEFORE harvest next year!
I make large batches and freeze them. If you’re going to freeze, it may be a good idea not to add the cilantro; because it remains uncooked, there’s the possibility of its going a bit bad. (I don’t KNOW that, it’s just a guess. Alas, since my wife is a “taster,” I can’t add cilantro.)
I haven’t tried it so I’m not sure. Of course he flavor will be different but the real key is to check to see about the pH level and food safety. You might try googling to find out. Do you hate the peeling part? I used to hate processing tomatoes, too, until I started broiling them to remove the skins. So much easier than boiling.
I thought of this speedy solution a few years ago and have repeated it many times in order to deal with an over-abundance of tomatoes and to provide a tasty and versatile sauce throughout the winter months.
Judy – it’s really up to you but it’s not recommended to can salsa or tomato products with skins on due to the increase in bacteria. I make fresh salsa with the skins on, too (I agree, delicious!) but when canning, I always remove the skins. Yes, the cooking time softens the vegetables and increases the flavor a bit.
Chow Chow (also known as picalilli) is a tart green relish common in Maritime Nova Scotia. Recipes are shared within families but often guarded beyond that as each family protects it’s ‘secret formula.’
Hello, my name is Kathy, I live in Adelaide S.A. I work I a child care centre as a cook, I love this page, so many good recipes,, has helped me out a lot thankyou, anyway I was just wondering, what is cilantro, is that corrianda.
I just wanted to let you know that I made this tonight – we were dubious at first that green tomato salsa would be very good, but it was absolutely delicious! I just wish I had more green tomatoes to make more salsa with. Thanks for the recipe!
As far as the flavor from the lime juice, you can try all lemon or half lemon, but you can’t substitute vinegar since it’s less acidic than citric juices. This recipe has been tested with this ratio only the extension office. You were right to follow it to the letter – salsa canning is a science, not an art. 🙂 Of course, this is only for canning – to freeze it you can add what you’d like.
Add just 1/4 cup chopped onion to the bowl. This doesn’t seem like a lot, considering that in my Pico de Gallo recipe, I preach and preach about how important it is for the onion to receive equal billing with the tomatoes. But for this salsa, it’s best to go subtle with the onions.
Making and canning your own salsa is something families remember years later.  No store bought salsa, even if it is shipped from Texas, compares with the taste of that made from your own tomatoes from your garden or fresh-picked from a local farm!  In the middle of the winter, you can have tortilla chips and your salsa and taste the summer flavor of fresh tomatoes. If you like cilantro in your salsa, see this recipe instead.
