Homemade Salsa

Last weekend we made some salsa with peppers and tomatoes from our garden and I thought I would share the recipe. The only change we made is that we left out the cilantro since both of us hate it, and if I made it again I think I would add more tomatoes. We used cayenne peppers and it turned out pretty spicy (at least in my opinion!), but delicious. I just need to eat it with sour cream :-)

Ball Blue Book Salsa
  • 10 cup Tomatoes; peeled and chopped
  • 5 cup Green peppers; chopped
  • 5 cup Onion; chopped
  • 2-1/2 cup Hot peppers; chopped
  • 3 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 2 Tbsp Cilantro; chopped
  • 1-1/4 cup Cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Hot pepper sauce; optional


Mix everything together in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Ladle into hot pint canning jars, put on lids and rings and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
NOTES: This uses about 6 pounds tomatoes, 2 pounds green pepper and 1 1/2 pounds onion. Depending on your tastes and how hot your peppers are, you may want to use less hot pepper. 3/4 cup finely chopped jalapeƱoss, with no hot pepper sauce added, makes a mild to medium salsa.
You could also drain off some of the tomato juices before mixing everything together.
Servings: 6 pints

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
