looking for good, safe recipes for water bath canning pizza and enchilada sauce. thanks!
Do you mean besides the ones at NCHFP and in the Ball books?
You'll be limited somewhat in the recipes you can use for BWB processing since many of the recipes include low-acid vegetables in addition to the tomatoes.
Basic pizza sauce is usually just plain tomato sauce with some dried Italian seasonings added so if you stick with that and add the required bottled lemon juice or citric acid there is no problem. Get much beyond that by adding onions and peppers and you start over the line into pressure canning. And of course no oils.
Honestly the easiest thing to do is just can plain standard tomato sauce and then you can turn it into either (or many other things) at serving time by just adding the various seasonings.
Forgot to add the link to this discussion on enchilada sauce.
Here is a link that might be useful: enchilada sauce discussion
thanks for the link- making Carol's enchilada sauce next. just made ketchup with my 5 year old and that one is next on the list for today:)
as for the pizza sauce, I have seen many online and in the past I used Mrs. Wages pizza sauce packet and cant seem to find it this year which is a bummer.
On Carol's enchilada sauce, could I add the spices/seasoning to the pot of tomatoes vs in each pint?
First you mix up the Spice Blend in a separate container. It is a separate recipe that stands on its own. Then you add 2 1/2 tsp. of that Spice Blend to each pint jar, not to the pot of tomatoes. You will have left over Spice Blend depending on how accurately you measure and whether you use the season salt or not.
they are processing now, I added the spices to the pot of tomatoes, let it boil and then simmer for awhile. Then added 1T of lemon juice to each pint just before adding the hot enchilada sauce. is that ok?
Wellll it's no safety issue but it may be a taste issue. Did you taste it before jarring it? It will intensify even more on the shelf.
I did and actually had some tonight on our veggie quesadillas, really tasty:)
