This recipe is a very good one to use for those of us that like your salsa a little hotter than just a mild salsa! I would strongly recommend that you double the recipe to make it worth your while. It has a great taste to it!! Read More

Wow! This recipe is way too tangy for my taste! Be sure you measure out the tomatoes AFTER you have cored chopped de-seeded. I used the recipe off of the Ball website and it said "7 cups or approximately 15 medium tomatoes". I used 19 medium tomatoes and don't think I had enough....only made 3 pint jars of salsa for me.

It was watery because I forgot to seed it! However it tastes good. I just drain it before eating it. Read More

This recipe worked very well. I did simmer the salsa for longer than specified and that kept it from being watery. (I like a thick salsa.) This recipe is flexible too so if you want it milder or spicier just adjust the amount of hot sauce or jalapenos. It's really not a spicy salsa as the directions are written but be aware that jalapenos can vary greatly in heat so use your taste buds as a guide before you preserve it. Read More

This really received a lot of compliments from my family. I made it and gave it as one of my Christmas gifts. I doubled this recipe used half fresh tomatoes and canned diced and crushed tomatoes added extra onions and a whole bulb of garlic. A chef on an oil rig tried and gave it a thumbs up. I collect my tomatoes during the summer wash them and put them in a ziplock bag and freeze until I have enough to make a full recipe. This way you don't have blanch them just thaw and they pop right out of the skins. Read More

This is by far the best salsa I have ever had. I made double the recipe so I can give it to my family for Christmas but I'm not sure if they are going to last that long. The jars might be gone before then. Lol! I'm more than likely going to make more. I added sweet vidalia onions to the recipe to add more substance to it and it was well worth it. Next time I'm going to add some peppers to it. Five star recipe in my book it was so fresh and tasty and highly addictive. I'll be making this recipe for years to come! Read More
