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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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!!

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.
