I have made this salsa 5 times, doubling it the last 4 as it was so good! I have friends that beg for jars of it, one who will eat a one litre whole jar in two days! I misread the recipe the first time i made it and bought a jalapeno pepper to put into it instead of banana peppers - i didn't want to waste all my chopping work so added half the pepper diced up and reduced the cayenne pepper to half...it was a home run! I have made it to the recipe once (just to see what the original was like) and 2 more times with the jalapeno - and the "mistake" version is my most requested but both are awesome. I have also added a mix of yellow, red and orange peppers instead of the green, added all of the sugar and replaced the yellow onion with more white and red - and it was a different flavor each time but was really good too. This is a very flexible and forgiving recipe which i know i will make over and over and over - planning my garden around it for next summer!! Thank you!
Well two years later and i STILL get friends offering to buy any salsa i make. I did plant a salsa garden this year and my first doubled batch is canned and being eaten already! I added a full jalapeno and a habenaro pepper to a regular recipe and can't wait for the ones who like hot to try it. For the garlic lovers, i added a tsp of minced garlic and doubled the garlic powder to an earlier batch to give it a really strong but tasty garlic presence. I am being asked to do that again!
