How to Make Homemade Salsa for Canning


  1. I have to make this in 2 batches as my pots aren't nearly big enough!! Dice everything fairly small and simmer for about an hour (or more if you like your veggies to be softer). Stirring often! I use a large canning pot and a boiling water immersion to seal my pint jars...Makes about 36 pint jars if you do the whole batch!!
  2. After putting up the majority of the salsa I will add a couple drops of Ghost Chili sauce to what is left and put up about 6 jars of EXTRA HOT Salsa!!
