I love salsa!! When my garden comes in, I start making my salsa, spaghetti sauce and pizza sauce.

I'm starting with my SALSA. This is the one that I open when I have company and serve chips. I also use it on/in some Mexican dishes. (It's good on Hot Dog also.)

I canned these in half pint jars. The more I want, more jars I open up.
