  1. I bet the salsa is fresh and bright and delicious. Our garden pooped out early this year and was not our best either. Too much heat and not enough rain. I am having a little “knife” envy – beautiful tool!

    Thanks Tricia – sorry about your garden, though. And I love my knives – they are made right here in the states, and I love the company, because I can send my whole set of knives right to them for sharpening any time I like.

  3. I stopped buying salsa a long time ago: good salsa are too expensive; cheap salsa have a bad taste so the only solution is to prepare your own salsa. I usually use red tomato and bird eyes chillies, I’ve never tried jalapenos and green tomatoes. Good to know! Thanks for sharing

    Yum! this sounds amazing and I can think of a zillion uses for it – thanks for sharing!

    Hi Rita and I agree about store bought salsa – it just doesn’t compare to what we can make ourselves. Hope you give this one a try!

    You’re welcome Anon, and thanks for stopping by!

    Oh, looks so good! It is just getting to be spring here, but I will give it a try when when our garden gets busy – thank you!

    Oh wow, doesn’t that stuff look yummy! Now I hope there are some of the right vegetables at the Market tomorrow, so I can try this. Thanks!

    Suibee – I get so jealous when I think you just getting to start summer, when ours is just about gone! Hope you enjoy it when you have the proper stuff growing in your area.

    Thanks Brenda – they still have all that good stuff at the farmer’s markets here, so I hope you found them!

    Homemade salsa is so good! We started making our own last year, and we haven’t gone back (at least during the summer!) Thank you so much for sharing…what a delicious way to end my weekend. I hope you have a beautiful Monday, my friend!

    Thanks Monet – and hope you enjoy the rest of the nice weather as well!

    Our hot sauce is very similar, but with tomatillos. This does looks like a good way to use up tomatoes that don’t get ripe though.

  12. Hi Donalyn! So jealous of your homemade salsa now. I’ve never canned anything before. It sounds fun and I would love to try, but I guess I’m very lazy and I need some big motivation or buddy to do it. My husband makes his own salsa but we never preserve it. We should – so he doesn’t complain to make it again… his recipe takes a long time by grilling each ingredient. Haha. Looks delicious!

  13. This looks so good, Donalyn! I am not a big spicy eater, but my kids would go through jars of this salsa :-) I usually make salsa for sissies (well, me) and they have to add spice to it.

  14. Donalyn says:

    carm – the flavor is actually pretty close to ones I’ve made using tomatillos. I think green tomatoes – as least the varieties we grew this year, are a bit less acidic than tomatillos.

    Nami – canning gets a lot easier once you have done it for awhile. You have some confidence, and all the needed equipment, so it doesn’t seem so daunting. Growing up, my Mom and grandmothers canned, and in our rural area, it is a very common thing, so there is a lot of advice and recipes floating around. I do think more people are getting into everywhere though.

    Bibi – you would make it less spicy by putting in more tomatoes and fewer jalapenos. I add hot sauce to commercial salsas though – I like things hot-hot-hot!

    Just made this today. Thought I messed up when after removing all the jalapeƱo seeds, I realized you had left them in. I added probably six jalapeƱos worth of seeds in and WOW… It has a nice burn! Great stuff – thanks for the recipe!
