This sounds great. What kind of canning lids do you use? All of mine are metal, which would make the microwave step a bit tricky. How long would you process the salsa in a water bath instead?

I use the 2 piece snap lids (lid & ring), they are metal, but they do work in the microwave. Seriously! 🙂I'm not sure about the water bath. I googled it, and found this (it varies based on your elevation): http://www.pickyourown.org/salsa.htm

I did mine in the microwave as well. It will be ok as long as the metal doesn't touch the side and if there is more glass than there is metal..it won't spark. place the lid on the jar ,not covering the opening completely so steam can escape. worked for me..

I should make my own salsa but in the meantime I'll just sit here and drool:)

Betty, how ya gonna make salsa without onions?? 😉 Did you find any tomatoes this year? Seems everyone's are rotting at the stem before they ripen.

Well Jeanine..that's why I won't make salsa..you can't taste so much of the onion in the store bought salsa so I shall just stick with that.Tomatoes in the garden did not do well but I had one in a pot which did very well although they were a smaller variety of tomatoes. Some hybrid kind..forget the name.

Yum! I just canned salsa myself. Yours is really pretty. That stinks about your tomato plants! But what would you do if all 24 plants were prolific? That's a LOT of tomatoes! If you succeed next year, ship me some salsa…and canned tomatoes…and homemade ketchup…lol!

Ha! Actually, the past 3 years I've had that many tomatoes. I can the salsa (a LOT of it, usually), and usually make a few batches of canned tomato soup. I've done tomato juice, veggie juice, spaghetti sauce & taco sauce. I admit, by the end, I'm really tired of looking at tomatoes! lol Your salsa looks really good too! Wow! I bet it tastes great!

Try adding a tablespoon of cumin, or cilantro, or both.

How long will canned salsa last?

From what I’ve read, canned salsa can be stored for 12-18 months. No matter how much I make, mine never seems to make it past 10 months before it is gone. 🙂

This was one of 5 different salsa recipes that I tried this weekend. I liked the flavor but WAY to salty. I remade it by making it again without the salt and then mixed the two together. Still a little salty but the flavor was pretty good. Thanks!

Hi Rose, I noticed that my last batch seems salty too, I’m not sure why. I’ve been using this recipe for years. I did, however, make sure to have very little liquid this time, and my salsa turned out thick, so it could be from that.

I used your recipe for canning salsa last year because it was my first time making salsa and wanted to find the easiest possible recipe. This was very easy and everyone in my family loves the salsa much more than store-bought! I made two batches and that lasted me about 6 months. Many people asked me to bring it every time we had a family get-together, and with 2 kids (now 3 kids) who love salsa, it didn’t last long. I’m making at least 3-4 batches this year and needed to reprint the recipe, so I thought I’d let you know how much we love it. The only substitution I made was Hungarian hot peppers instead of jalapenos because that’s what I had on hand. Thank you!

Thanks so much, Amber! My family loves it too, and I usually have to make 3 or 4 batches just to make it through the year. 🙂 Once you’ve had homemade, store-bought just doesn’t do it anymore. 🙂 Thanks for the review, i appreciate it!
[…] can much, but when those tomatoes turn red, I’ve got my work cut out for me. Besides making salsa, I also make this canned tomato […]
