Peppers from the freezer are a mainstay of cooking in the winter – along with sliced celery and storage onions! They are all three very versatile, and when combined represent the holy trinity of cooking.

Canning salsa is definitely an option – you just need to follow a trusted and tested recipe to ensure you have the right acid content for water bathing tomatoes/salsa. I repeat – use a reliable recipe. I know you can find anything on the internet, but why risk it? I use the recipes at the National Center for Home Food Preservation. There are several to choose from, they’re delicious and they’re tested – everything you could want.
Wash tomatoes. Remove stems and cores with a knife. Bring at least 4 inches of water to a boil in a large kettle. Immerse tomatoes, a few at a time, into boiling water for about a minute, or until the skins start to crack and peel off the flesh. Immediately dip tomatoes into cold water, and drain in a colander. Slip off the skins, and discard. Coarsely chop the tomatoes; place in a large colander set in sink, and allow to stand for 30 minutes. This will allow much of the tomato juice to strain out. (place the colander over a large bowl if you wish to save the juice for something else)
Hi Carl. I wouldn’t worry too much about it. The skins won’t really hurt anything other than the texture. Skimming them off the top sounds like a good idea, but I wouldn’t worry too much if you don’t get them all. Glad you’re trying the recipe.
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??
This sweet salsa with a spicy kick will receive rave reviews and it couldn’t be simpler to prepare. Just toss coarsely chopped blueberries with drained pineapple tidbits, green onions, basil, mango chutney, lime juice, salt, and crushed red pepper. Serve with our Jerk Pork Tenderloin or as a tasty appetizer with tortilla chips.

The humble tomato packs a nutritious punch. One medium tomato has about as much fiber as a slice of whole wheat bread. Tomatoes are also a good source of vitamins C and A, plus contain potassium and phosphorous.
Ball Canning is a good place to start, but I doubt you’ll enjoy the excessively pickled flavor. But you have to learn to walk before you can run. Buy a pressure canner. It’s the only way to make home canned salsa using lower amounts of lime juice as a preservative. Research: Annie’s Salsa for some direction.
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.
“This recipe is so close to the Salsa served at Pappasitos that you will swear you are there. Every time I serve this people ask for the recipe. Best part is that it is so easy and doesn’t require fresh tomatoes so it works all winter.”
I’m on the hunt for an out-of-this-world pico de gallo recipe. While this was not it, this will be my go-to base recipe for the time being. Fresh and good. Make sure to drain as much liquid from the tomatoes as possible during seeding and chopping. Let the lime juice and seasonings stand out by eliminating tomato liquid completely. Day 2 the flavor was still good in our case.
Simple, fresh and easy to make. A winning Mexican restaurant style salsa prepared with plum tomatoes, onion cilantro, and serrano peppers. Fresh tomatoes, not canned, star in this recipe. In Mexico, it is known as salsa roja (red sauce) or salsa de mesa (table sauce). And just like in the U.S., it is served in every restaurant before your meal with tortilla chips.
I couldn’t dry them fast enough to prevent them all from spoiling, so we had to chop up quite a few and get them right into the freezer (you may wish to check out my post on The Easiest Way to Preserve Tomatoes.
Add the onion, jalapeño and garlic to your food processor and pulse 2-3 times until roughly chopped but not liquid. Dump in the remaining ingredients and pulse a couple of times. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve with tortilla chips.
My roommates and I just made this and LOVED it! I have been looking for a simple, flavorful, and delicious salsa recipe and this is it! Thank you for this and all your recipes! I am looking forward to making this again and adding some pineapple or mango!
I’ve planted an herb garden every summer for three years with decent results. I have mint for my mojitos, basil for my pesto, and a three-year-old rosemary plant that is starting to look more like a small tree.
The directions with this salsa recipe state: Process 35 minutes. Now that I’ve updated yesterday’s canning tomatoes post with correct, safe information (you should check it out for sure), I would recommend finding a board-approved salsa recipe online and using their processing times. For me, I’m going to process 35 minutes for pints and 40 for quarts and call it good, but I’m crazy like that.
Plums, jalapeño, basil, red onion, and a splash of lime juice come to create a quick and fruity salsa that you and your family will love. Serve with our Pan-Grilled Chicken for a quick weeknight meal.
Yo preparé una salsa. Fue muy picante y muy bueno. Fue salado y dulce pero se ve delicioso. Tenia bueno sabor. El jalapeño y los pimientos son muy picantes. Yo encanta la comida picante y la salsa. Mi salsa es mas jugoso que mi amigo Will salsa. Salsa es bueno para fiestas. Salsa es mas cremoso que otro salsa.
[…] chunky salsa – I wasn’t satisfied with the salsa recipe I canned last month. This one is so much better! Whatever I did it was the perfect amount of heat, and the consistency is just like restaurant salsa. We will definitely enjoy this come winter. […]
[…] For one thing, salsa is serious business around here. I may have mentioned my Tostitos addiction at some point? And runny food processor made salsa is not going to cut it. I’m sorry, it’s just not. This recipe is the best homemade salsa EVER. […]
