Making and Canning Salsa!!!

A couple weeks ago I harvested the tomatoes, peppers, and garlic I had grown in the garden. I purchased the onions, cilantro and lemon juice and got to work making salsa!!! There's nothing better than home made salsa!!! Truly!!!

Don't those ingredients look beautiful!!?? I don't use any pesticides or fertilizers or anything. Just the rain, the well water, and the gorgeous sun!!

Here's the information I found that has the recipes and the how-to-can information!! It is a tedious project, lots of work preparing the ingredients. The canning process is simple, just follow the instructions!!!

Here's the first batch-above and below-in the canner and then on the counter
cooling. Love listening to those cap seal, music to my ears!!!

I ended up getting 14 pints of salsa. YUMM!!! A friend of mine made and canned 50 pints!!! WOW! That is a lot of work but what a wonderful winter they will have with all that home-made Salsa!!!

Next year I am going to try and grow onions. I've never been very successful at it, but it is still worth trying!! I am also going to grow my own cilantro. Then I will just have to purchase the lemon juice which is vital to ensuring my salsa is safe!!!

Take care friends, Happy Salsa, Enjoy the Earth!!! Later!! Martha


  1. Let me know how you like it. Most Texans I know are picky about their salsa and I haven't found a canning recipe that people really like. I usually just make pico instead.

    1. We had a small bowl leftover to snack on and it was good. Very fresh but not hot enough. I am hoping that it will heat up a bit with time. If not, next time I will add more hot peppers. I can always add it when we open a jar!!! Have a great week!!! Looks like we are going to get some rain, hopefully it will help with the fires here in Oregon and Washington!! Take Care, Martha
