Help - I lost my notes on Annie's Salsa!

Last summer I literally spent days combing through all the posts on Annie's Salsa. There was/is so much great information out there. I believe it was malna who posted/compiled the recipe and listed what could safely be omitted or altered according to taste.

Well, I made two batches last summer and everyone LOVED it (thank you Annie!). Now I've gone and lost my notes on what I altered to suit out tastes (i.e we don't care for cilantro so I left it out, etc). Darnit.

I've copied what I THINK I did below. Could someone please tell me if this is safe? Thank you!

ANNIES (altered) SALSA

8 cups tomatoes, peeled, chopped and drained 

2 1/2 cups chopped onion 

1 1/2 cups chopped green pepper 

3 5 chopped jalapenos 
(total peppers cannot exceed 1-3/4 cups.)

6 cloves minced garlic 

2 tsp cumin 

2 tsp pepper

1/8 cup canning salt

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup 5% cider vinegar

cup bottled lime juice

16 oz. tomato sauce

Mix all ingredients, bring to a boil, boil gently 10 minutes.
Pour into hot jars, process pints for BWB 15 minutes. 

Makes 6 pints

Yes, that's fine.

Thank you, Carol!

Glad to Help

You're welcome. I know how frustrating it is to lose notes. The way life is, you'll probably find them when canning season is over!


RE: Help - I lost my notes on Annie's Salsa!

I agree, that's fine. I might try the addition of some lime juice to a batch myself, just so I don't get in a rut!

It's nearly time to start making it here, too.


RE: Help - I lost my notes on Annie's Salsa!

Thanks, Annie! I didn't have quite enough tomatoes from our garden so I had to supplement with some from the farm market. I'm hoping the next batch will be all home grown but we just couldn't wait that long. We've been salsa free for two months. Yikes!

Carol, you read my mind. Those notes will pop up the second I pack up the canner. :)
