Ball Blue Book Salsa
- 10 cup Tomatoes; peeled and chopped
- 5 cup Green peppers; chopped
- 5 cup Onion; chopped
- 2-1/2 cup Hot peppers; chopped
- 3 Cloves garlic; minced
- 2 Tbsp Cilantro; chopped
- 1-1/4 cup Cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp Salt
- 1 tsp Hot pepper sauce; optional
Mix everything together in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Ladle into hot pint canning jars, put on lids and rings and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
NOTES: This uses about 6 pounds tomatoes, 2 pounds green pepper and 1 1/2 pounds onion. Depending on your tastes and how hot your peppers are, you may want to use less hot pepper. 3/4 cup finely chopped jalapeñoss, with no hot pepper sauce added, makes a mild to medium salsa.
You could also drain off some of the tomato juices before mixing everything together.Servings: 6 pints
