“grilled fresh peach salsa recipe the best salsa recipe made with fresh tomatoes”

When I moved to Vancouver, I became pretty smitten with the salsa produced by a local company. It was The Vancouver salsa, or so it seemed. A tub of it would turn up at every pot luck, bridal shower, art opening – pretty much every event deemed worthy of snacking, along came the salsa. Add some tortilla chips and sometimes this salsa would qualify as a solo dinner. These weren’t my proudest moments. After years of the same salsa and the same chips, I became bored. Especially after a 5 week honeymoon camping road trip that took us all over the Southwest where I discovered such amazing salsa varieties!

Did you know the hottest part of peppers are the white ribs or membranes (pith) on the inside of the peppers. They’re hotter than the seeds. The more of the ribs you leave on, the hotter the salsa will be. The seeds will add some spiciness since they’ve been rubbing against the pith. If you like your salsa on the mild side, cut out the white part on the inside and remove all the seeds.

I to use Roma tomatoes during the winter months. I agree those little can get expensive. We have a vegetable garden in the summer months and by July we are in tomato overload 🙂 Love the roasting idea!

Combine strawberries, mango and cantaloupe for the base of this fruit salsa, and then add some savory flavor with cucumber, bell pepper, and onion. Serve this fruit-and-veggie salsa as side dish or a topping for grilled fish or chicken.

I just finish making 18 pints of salsa, using this recipe with some modifications! I added 2 cups of finely dice red and green bell peppers, increased the vinegar to 3/4 cup and came out with a pH of 4.1. I let it set for about 30 minutes after mixing to mix the flavors and then I brought to a boil and only simmered for about 5 minutes, as I like less soggy salsa!

This ones a keeper! Just started a garden this year and I didn’t know what to do with all the tomatoes and peppers I got out of it. I don’t cook often, didn’t know anything about making salsa or canning, but this recipe is easy to follow and if I can do it, anyone can. Expect a lot of complements on it when you share it! I will definitely make a bigger batch next go around. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Just tried this salsa recipe tonight. First time making salsa actually. If I had known  how easy it was and good it turn out, I should have made some much sooner. Thanks for the recipe. This is definitely a keeper.

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.

10 Let jars cool, lids should pop: Remove jars from the water bath and let sit on a counter for several hours until completely cool. The lids should “pop” as the cooling salsa creates a vacuum under the lid and the jars are sealed.

Great recipe! I’ve never made my own salsa before now but I had a ton of Roma’s from our garden that needed to get used. I just made this recipe and it turned out so YUMMY! It’s so easy, the food processor did most of the work for me and it went really quick. Definitely making this again, maybe very soon with the tomato explosion we’re experiencing 😉 and next time I will add the second jalapeno to make it a little more spicy.

This was a delicious way to use ripe tomatoes. I decided to make this at the last minute to serve with pork carnitas, rice, and tortillas. I’m so glad I did – this salsa made the meal. It had a full, robust flavor and was the perfect complement to the other items served.

Note that it is the vinegar in the salsa ingredients that make this salsa safe for canning using a water bath canning method. Tomatoes are already slightly acidic, and only need a little more acid to be safely canned using this method. But the chiles are not acidic, so they need more vinegar.

Fresh, juicy fruit (like mango) is the perfect addition to any salsa recipe. This easy-to-make version combines mango with bell pepper and then freshens the salsa up with a squeeze of lime juice and fresh cilantro.

I tried this recipe for the first this year (and also my first time canning food). I followed the instructions but I only got one jar and a half (1L jar though). Is that normal? If not, what did I did wrong? The taste is very good though. I just wish I could have more cans of salsa!

We canned, labeled, taste tested, did follow-up surveys. We, our families, and our friends were the discerning critics for the process. Of the 6 recipes whose performance in previous canning adventures had qualified them to participate in this competition, this salsa was the clear winner!!! Every taste tester liked the salsa at each step – fresh, canned for a while, canned for a year. In fact, we had to keep back a single (hidden and disguised) bottle to use for the “canned for a year” competition. Our tasters loved this recipe so much that while there were plenty bottles of the other recipes around, this recipe was searched for every time they craved salsa. It is also very pretty in the jar; which, may be superficial, but is also satisfying at the end of the canning day!

Brad has a small garden in the back yard. We have tomatoes {several different types}, jalapenos, zucchini and cantaloupe. The zucchini and cantaloupe haven’t produced yet, but we have loads of tomatoes and jalapenos.

The name says it all about this superb tomato – the Fresh Salsa tomato is ideal for making homemade salsa. These tomatoes can be chopped into tiny cubes and still remain firm and solid. It’s all meat and ideal for making salsa, bruschettas, and very light Italian sauces.

Cover the canner and bring to boil over high heat. Once water boils vigorously, continue boiling for 15 minutes at altitudes of less than 1,000 ft. (adjust processing time for your altitude if necessary).

This actually is the exact recipe I received from the friend. I wouldn’t change processing times without mentioning it. The other recipe I used processed for 30 minutes. ??? The salsa was great last year, not overcooked at all! Strange. I’ll have to look up some other recipes to decide if I want to shorten the time. I’m all nervous about some aspects of canning now! Thanks for the note, and the resources. 🙂 Katie

Also, FYI… When I was trying to leave my comment.. A really annoying box kept coming up in front of the screen asking me to follow you. Not that I mind being asked that because I like your blog… But it made it where I couldn’t even type anything and I just went to my notes in iPhone and typed my comment that way and then copied and pasted it (I had to do the same thing for this comment too) . Just thought you should know cause I’m sure you don’t want your followers to have such difficulties giving feedback 🙂

Thanks Theresa. People have been canning with your mom’s method for many years. And it probably does work well for your family. But it is not a recommended as safe process from the food safety police as it provides for a chance of bacteria growth in your canned jars. For legal reasons, I can’t recommended any process not blessed by the local food extensions. Sure you understand that. But I appreciate you sharing with me.

Ladle hot salsa into prepared jars, leaving a 1/2 inch of headspace. Prepare the lids according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Wipe the rims, apply lids and rings and process in a hot water bath for 15 minutes.

Pulse your food processor about 10 or so times. You don’t want your salsa to get too soupy. However, you’ll want to make sure all of your ingredients are diced up and fully incorporated. I hope your family enjoys this salsa as much as mine does! Even the kiddos go crazy for this recipe!

This Fresh Tomato salsa recipe will require  a lot of chopping. I recommend chopping the tomatoes by hand. The onions and peppers can go into a food processor to save you time and tears. If you don’t have a food processor, consider mine. Dave just bought me this Cuisinart 14 cup food processor. I LOVE it!
