Fresh Homemade Salsa

Homemade salsa is easy to make and so delightfully bright and flavorful!

 

  • HOW DO I MAKE A ROASTED SALSA?

    We love a good roasted salsa! Place the roma tomatoes onto a baking sheet and place 6 inches beneath the broiler in your oven. Broil until the skins are blackened, rotating every few minutes. Once skins are blackened, let cool and remove peels. Then proceed with the recipe as written. If you like your hot peppers roasted as well, you can add them to the sheet pan at the same time.

  • TOMATILLO SALSA / SALSA VERDE:

    If you prefer salsa Verde, simply replace the roma tomatoes with husked and quartered tomatillos.

  • CANNING INSTRUCTIONS:

    If you want to can salsa, you will need to make a couple of modifications to this recipe. To start, you will need to peel your tomatoes to avoid large chunks of skin in your salsa. You will also need to cook the salsa and add approx. 1/3 cup vinegar. Larger batches will require more vinegar to ensure a high enough acidity to safely preserve the salsa. If you are planning on making a roasted salsa, peeling tomatoes will already be taken care of in those directions.

    Once everything is peeled and chopped, add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil on the stove. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Then, fill sterilized pint or quart sized canning jars, leaving a 1/2 inch of headspace. Be sure to wipe the rim clean and seal with a canning lid and ring. Do not over tighten. Cover the tops of the jars with at least 1 inch of water and process in a water bath for 15 minutes (higher elevations and/or larger jars will need a longer processing time).

    Carefully remove the jars from the water bath and let sit out on the counter undisturbed for 24 hours. You should hear a ping from each jar as they seal. After 24 hours, check to make sure the jars have sealed correctly by lightly pressing the top of the lid. If the center bubbles up and down when you press it, is has not sealed and needs to either be refrigerated or reprocessed. If the lid is firm, the jar properly sealed and can be stored in the pantry.
