Homemade Canned Salsa Recipe
  • Remove the skins and chop the tomatoes.
  • Chop the onions, green peppers, and jalapenos into small pieces. Be sure to remove the seeds from the jalapenos before chopping.
  • Mince the garlic cloves.
  • Place these vegetables and all the rest of the ingredients into a large pot.
  • Cook over medium high heat until the salsa mixture comes to a full rolling boil.
  • While the salsa is cooking, prepare canning lids and rings by placing in a saucepan, covering with water, and bring water to a simmer. Once lids have come to a simmer, turn heat off but leave saucepan with lids on the burner and allow lids to remain in the hot water until ready to use.
  • After the salsa comes to a full boil carefully pour the hot salsa into canning jars.
  • Wipe any salsa off the rim of the jar that might have spilled when filling the jars; seal with canning lids and rings.
  • Set the jars aside and allow the salsa to cool completely. The jars should seal while they are cooling.
