Time 1h30m

Yield 17

Number Of Ingredients 13


  • 30 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 10 cups chopped onions
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato paste
  • 2 green bell peppers, chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, chopped
  • 4 banana peppers, chopped
  • ½ cup white sugar, or more to taste
  • 10 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 8 teaspoons pickling salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • ½ bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 17 (1 pint) canning jars with lids and rings


  • Combine tomatoes, onions, vinegar, tomato paste, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, banana peppers, sugar, garlic, pickling salt, and black pepper in a large stockpot; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 30 minutes. Mix cilantro into salsa.
  • Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack salsa into hot, sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids and screw on rings.
  • Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 35 minutes.
  • Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.

Zesty Salsa for Canning image

I got this years ago from the lady in our church who canned it. I've never made it but I've eaten lots of it! It's the best salsa I have ever had. Especially good with lime tortilla chips or on taco salad (recipe #102234).

I received this recipe from a friend and have been making it for years. I think it has the best flavors with the cumin seed and cilantro. Increase the amount of peppers to increase the heat.

Top Asked Questions

  1. Is it OK to make salsa out of canned tomatoes?
    Salsa is one of our favorite home canned goods; we use it not only as a snack, but it’s also a staple ingredient that I use in chili recipes and other spicy dishes in lieu of canned tomatoes. Canning salsa is a great way for me to preserve not only the tomatoes, but peppers and onions from the garden, too.
  2. How do you make salsa in a canning jar?
    Bring salsa to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer, and simmer for 30 minutes stirring every few minutes. Ladle hot salsa into hot sterilized canning jars, and LEAVE 1/2 an inch headspace at the top! “Headspace” is the unfilled room in the jar above the food and below the rim.

    This is a comprehensive list of over 200 of the best canning recipes ranging from jams and jellies to pickles, salsas, and savory sauces.

    Pint size mason jars and new canning lids. Jar Lifter for lifting hot jars out of water. Plastic or Rubber Gloves for protection while cutting peppers. Chop tomatoes, peppers and onions a bit larger for chunkier salsa! To prevent watery salsa, After chopping tomatoes, put them in a colander over the sink and drain off excess liquid!

  • Remove the skins from the tomatoes. To do this, make an “X” in the bottom of the tomatoes, than place in boiling water for 60 seconds. Then, remove the tomatoes from the water and place directly into a bowl if iced water to shock. The skins should slip right off. (I use my spider to transfer the tomatoes from the boiling water to the ice water without getting splashed.)
  • Place all of the ingredients in a large pot (you will need a 10qt. saucepan for this batch, or split the ingredients among 2 saucepans) and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Taste! Add more spice as needed.
  • You’ll then process using a water bath. To do this, bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil. Your saucepan needs to be tall enough to have the water cover the jars by 2 inches- though the jars will displace some of the water as they are added.
  • Add the jars to the water bath and cover with a lid. Process for 30 minutes, then remove. I use these tongs to make things easy.
