I’m still on a canning kick here. How can I not be with all the great produce that’s available this time of year?

Today I’m sharing my canning recipe for a good, basic salsa. The tomatoes are still coming in and peppers are ready, too, so it was time to go ahead and put up a few jars of this deliciousness to keep on hand for the winter. It’s so nice to open a jar of homemade salsa when it’s cold out and be able to taste those fresh summer tomatoes once more. Mmmmm. A jar of this in my Salsa Chicken recipe in the middle of winter…well, I have to say it’s just fabulous.

This recipe makes five pints. That’s just about right for our household. If you want to make more, you can double or triple the recipe. Just make sure that you keep the same proportions to guarantee that it’s safe for canning.

Hey, Thyme. I need some advice from an expert. My wife made some tomato sauce from the recipe belonging to her farmer friend. The recipe ended up too sweet. Do you have an idea that will cut the sweetness without having to add more of the other ingredients. HELP!!!

Bob - You might try adding a little lemon juice to help cut the sweetness. Try it with a small amount of the sauce first to get your proportions right.
