Blue Ribbon Salsa Recipe for Canning


1For this salsa recipe prepare jars and lids according to manufacturer’s instructions for sterilized jars. Keep jars hot.

2Preparing Peppers: The jalapeño peppers and Italian hot peppers do not need to be peeled.

3Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and heat, stirring frequently, until mixture boils. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4Ladle hot into clean, hot jars, leaving ½-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles, adjust headspace if needed, and wipe rims with a dampened clean paper towel. Adjust lids and process 15 minutes using a boiling water bath method. At altitudes of 1000 feet or higher, increase processing time 1 minute for each 1000 feet of altitude.

5Remove canner from heat, remove lid and let jars sit 5 minutes in canner. Remove jars from canner, set on a clean towel or rack to cool.

6When cool, check seals. Lids should be down in the center or stay down when pressed. Remove rims, label, date and store in a cool, dark, dry place. Unsealed jars should be refrigerated and used within 3 weeks.

Mrs. Wages Safety notes:
For canning safety, always consider your local altitude when calculating accurate processing times. Read this USDA guide for proper food safety and canning processing guidelines or consult the National Center for Home Food Preservation’s Guide 1 Principles of Home Canning. Also, prepare and process home canning jars and lids according to manufacturer’s instructions for sterilized jars. Keep jars hot.
