Leftover Salsa juice - Safe?
I am using a vairety of approved recipes out of the Ball complete book to make salsa. When I am jarring the salsa, there is always quite a bit of juice leftover due to the tomatoes seeping juices. I'm not "straining" the liquid per se, just trying to get all the chunky bits and whatever juice comes with them. My question is, if this happens, doesn't it dilute the amount of vinegar in the finished product? I am straining the tomatoes a number of times before putting them in the final pot but I am still getting a ton of juice leftover and am worried about the safety.
