After several attempts to come up with a salsa we like.... She hit on a pretty good one.....  I know she will adjust the recipe every time she makes it so..... this recipe is in effect for today only.....  I am surprised she wrote it down.....  I think this is a first for her....

I thought I would pass this on because it is tomato season......    Dave


Of course, adjusting to your preference in taste is allowed....

Living in So Cal I have never made a canned salsa so this recipe was interesting to me - I was reading thru the recipe and I noticed her note that if it is too runny to add some tomato paste. Has she ever tried salting the tomatoes and letting them sit for a while to draw out the moisture? 

Also - have you ever played with chipotle powder in place of the chili powder? Brings a whole different flavor profile.

Thanks for sharing the recipe

She does that with cabbage to make coleslaw.... I'll mention it..... and then "duck"..

I think that would be good.......  I'll mention it ..... 

Thanks for sharing the recipe...  My pleasure.....

I mentioned the chipotle powder.... She said, "I have been using it since we started making our own"......

Just one more recipe that all the ingredients aren't listed correctly from a woman's recipe collection.....  

Why do they do that.....  

I knew there were secrets in HER kitchen I wasn't aware of.....

Sounds good to me. My Grandma was one to TELL you what the recipe was then DO something slightly different. I started volunteering to help then watching like a Hawk and writing stuff down rather than ask for the recipe...JJ

How do you think this would work in half pints? We're doing a bunch of half pints for Christmas presents to be included with pepper jelly and summer sausage. I have a salsa recipe I googled but I'd rather use one that I trust the author more.

I think it would work fine for gifts.... for daily use, we would eat a pint no problem......  It sure beat the store bought stuff...  one note about the garlic, we use hard neck home grown... It has 5 times the flavor of california garlic sold in the stores and really give it a ZING.... fresh cilantro adds a dimension that is really good too....   Dave

We whipped up a half batch while smoking summer sausage, 12 half pints to go in Christmas baskets. Awesome recipe, thanks Dave!

Just wanted to bump this one up for those who are looking to make a great salsa,,,

It's that time again...  I just checked and I have two pints of the salsa sitting on the shelf; my tomato plants are starting to put out so it's Salsa Time...  

When I make Jeff's BBQ Sauce, I'll add a pint of 'The Brides Salsa' to the mix, boil it down and it ends up a sauce to be proud of..

Thanks again Dave...

I wish we had enough salsa makings in our garden. Been a horrible year for whatever reason.
