Here’s one of my favorite recipes for that: Crockpot Canning Salsa. It preserves all the tastes of a summer garden in one container: tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and three kinds of peppers. And it makes a nice big batch, so you can cook up a whole winter’s supply in one go.
Using canning tongs, gently transfer the jars to the canner, taking care to keep them vertical. When all the jars are in the canner, there should be at least 1 inch water covering them; if you need more, add water from the kettle until the jars are sufficiently covered. Bring the water to a full rolling boil, and process for 10 minutes.
Awesome! Glad you like it Leslie! Your pepper mix sounds good. We just pulled the last of our peppers from the garden yesterday. We sliced them up (bells, sweet carmens, and pasillas) and mixed with sliced onions to freeze for future fajita meals. Gotta love having a garden!
A. Well, Grandma may be sweet, but a lot of her generation died of cancer from smoking, heart attacks from eating too much saturated fat… And food poisoning! 🙂 Jam should get 5 minutes in the boiling water bath, too.
Arrange the tortillas in a stack and cut into 6 equal wedges. Pour about 1-inch of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F on a deep-fat frying thermometer. Fry just a few at a time, turning occasionally, until crisp and lightly browned, about 1 minute. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle lightly with salt, if desired. Store in an airtight container.
Use as much or as little jalapeño as you like. If you accidentally put in too much, add more tomatoes or even blend in a little tomato sauce if you have some on hand. This recipe also works well with canned diced tomatoes when you’re craving a taste of summer during the dark days of winter.
This Hispanic has tried making salsa before with all of them fails! I don’t know how, lol, but I did in the past. I found your recipe and I was thinking somehow I will fail this one too, NOPE not this Your recipe is so good, the jalapeños I had were extra big so I only added one. Thank you thank you thank you for helping me achieve the best tasting salsa! So greatful for you sharing your recipe!
“This amazing salsa recipe is a family favorite, shared by my sister-in-law Rosanna. Great for those summer-fresh veggies! Wear gloves to avoid ‘burns’ from chopping peppers! ENJOY! Fabulous to add in some fresh cilantro and oregano also!”
I’m really looking forward to fresh garden salsa. It’s been quite chilly and gray here in Northern Massachusetts as well but luckily, no frost. Hopefully, that will be the last of the snow that you’ll see this spring.
This basic recipe for fresh, homemade salsa is a great place to start, but let your garden (and your taste buds) be your guide. Whether it’s corn, cucumbers or even roasted root vegetables, salsa is the great equalizer.
I used fresh grape tomatoes, green small tomatoes and roma tomatoes from my garden and it was sooo good. Seriously addictive. I’m happy I found this, thank you. I made it twice in the last month now and Im ashamed to say I have ate 1-2 jars in one week. It makes almost 3 jars every time for me using 3 pounds.
I love that you used roasted canned tomatoes as that makes the process sooooo much easier. It lends such a vibrant red color too! Because of the tedious nature of skinning fresh tomatoes, I never make fresh salsa, but I think you’ve changed my mind. Such a peeeerty salsa ?!

Hi Janet. I haven’t tried freezing my salsa so I’m not sure how it will be. Probably just fine would be my guess. I’m curious to know, so if you wouldn’t mind, please let me know how it works out. Thanks for commenting. Happy eating!
First up, our superfast Black-Eyed Pea and Tomato Salsa comes together quickly. Adding the inner veins and seeds from the poblano chile will increase the heat in this salsa. Serve with tortilla chips for a fresh, summery appetizer.
Remove the jars once processed to a towel on your counter to dry. Away from cold drafts. The jars will make little tingy popping sounds as they seal. Music to my ears! The lid tops have a raised part that depresses when they seal. Leave the jars alone until they are room temperature. The seals need time to set. It’s not recommended to move hot sealed jars.
