This recipe is a very good one to use for those of us that like your salsa a little hotter than just a mild salsa! I would strongly recommend that you double the recipe to make it worth your while. It has a great taste to it!!
Wow! This recipe is way too tangy for my taste! Be sure you measure out the tomatoes AFTER you have cored, chopped de-seeded. I used the recipe off of the Ball website and it said "7 cups or approximately 15 medium tomatoes". I used 19 medium tomatoes and don't think I had enough....only made 3 pint jars of salsa for me.
It was watery because I forgot to seed it! However it tastes good. I just drain it before eating it.
This recipe worked very well. I did simmer the salsa for longer than specified, and that kept it from being watery. (I like a thick salsa.) This recipe is flexible, too, so if you want it milder or spicier, just adjust the amount of hot sauce or jalapenos. It's really not a spicy salsa as the directions are written, but be aware that jalapenos can vary greatly in heat, so use your taste buds as a guide before you preserve it.
I've made 2 batches of this recipe. My family loves it so this recipe will stay in my recipe files :)
I have made numerous batches of this recipe over the past 2 years and it always turns out awesome! I do it just as written, and have gotten rave reviews from everyone who has tried it. This will be one recipe that gets hand down the generations.
This is by far the best salsa I have ever had. I made double the recipe so I can give it to my family for Christmas but I'm not sure if they are going to last that long. The jars might be gone before then. Lol! I'm more than likely going to make more. I added sweet vidalia onions to the recipe to add more substance to it and it was well worth it. Next time I'm going to add some peppers to it. Five star recipe in my book it was so fresh and tasty and highly addictive. I'll be making this recipe for years to come!
Never made it to the Jars. :) My Teens loves it!
