This salsa has a wonderful flavor. Adding all the sugar produces a salsa like you would serve on meat. My last batch I left the 3 1/2 cups sugar out and it makes more of a chip dipping salsa. Either way is great! Read More

This isn't salsa. This is jam. If you want salsa leave out the pectin and so much sugar. In fact leave out all the sugar. As a jam the recipe rates a higher star rating but as a salsa the recipe gets just two stars. Read More

I include 1 peeled, chopped mango and the juice of the lime too. Using red onion makes it even more colorful. Agree that less sugar & more vinegar gives it a bit more "zing" and we like it that way. It's great alongside grilled fish or chicken too. My kind of recipe; easy but impressive and versital. Read More

Wow! I have made 5 batches of this salsa the last two times using frozen peaches drained well. I also have been using only 2 1/2 c. sugar as the original recipe was a little too sweet for us though still worth 5 stars. Read More

I only gave it 4 stars because I onle added 2 cups of sugar instead of 3 1/2 and I think it is still to sweet to eat with chips. It's fantastic for chicken or pork though. I think I will make another batch with very little sugar to eat with chips. Thanks for the great recipe!! Read More

This was awesome. I did do some touching up though. I didn't add any sugar since my peaches were very sweet and ripe and I added a 32 ounce can of chopped tomatoes and a 4 ounce can of tomato paste. I also only used 1 jalapeno since my kids would be eating it. I made 15 pint size jars and I am making more today!! Excellent recipe!! Read More

I was looking for a recipe to recreate the famous Harry and David's peach salsa when I found this. My entire family says it is better than Harry and David's. It is very addictive especially with Nacho Doritos! Read More

We loved this! I cut back on the sugar 1 1/4 cup TOTAL but kept everything else the same. I was a little bummed that it only gave me 2 pint size jars and a bit so I ended up making another batch to round it up to 5 jars. It didn't fill the last jar so it is in the fridge cooling for later yum yum! Overall delicious! I can't wait for next peach season and I will quadruple the recipe!!! Read More

This salsa is really sweet and earthy tasting. I added a few extra jalepenos because mine were so incredibly mild. I also only use 3 1/2 cups of sugar instead of four I think that's plenty. If you are looking for a spicier version of this I'd suggest putting in a WHOLE lot more hot stuff. As it is this is one of our favorite salsas- sweet earthy and tangy. Read More
