How To Make Zesty Salsa For Canning Recipe
This recipe is super easy… Just chop all your onions, and peppers. I used a grinder to turn my tomatoes into sauce, then add everything to your stock pot.

Zesty Salsa Canning Recipe Ingredients:
I have a garden full of tomatoes, mostly the Roma tomato variety, that I need to preserve! You can use any type of tomato in the recipe, and you’ll need 10 cups of tomato sauce.
You need several cups of chopped onions here. I like to use the food processor with onions, because they make me cry so bad when chopping them!
This canning salsa recipe calls for 7 1/2 cups of chopped peppers! That’s a lot of peppers, but I’ve got so many! I’m using 5 cups of chopped banana or sweet peppers, 2 cups of green bell peppers and 1/2 a cup of chopped jalapenos!
Vinegar is used in this recipe to make it acidic enough to safely water bath can it! Plus it give a zesty flavor that I love!
The recipe calls for 3 cloves of garlic but I just used 3 teaspoons of the pre-chopped canned garlic… It’s so much easier!
I LOVE the flavor of cilantro! This recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro.
I was surprised that this recipe only called for 1 tablespoon of salt, but it was plenty salty even though this makes 6 entire pints!
