Today I tried my hand at canning Salsa again. This time using Yellow Pear tomatoes and a variety of peppers from my garden.
Here we have the lovely green sweet banana peppers, hot banana peppers, jalapeno peppers and some Serrano. The beautiful yellow pear tomatoes and my first batch of mixture. Super pretty. I liked all the yellow with touches of red and green.
What I didn’t like was the color changing. But I can deal with it. I know that’s what canning does to stuff. I know this much, the peppers were free, and the tomatoes cost 15$ for about 25 pounds, so …. for 15$ I will have over 100$ worth of salsa. Can’t beat that!! You can see the salsa beginning to settle to the bottom of the jars.
Yup you read it right, my second batch is in the canner! This one is MUCH HOTTER than the first because I added the remainder of my jalapenos and Serrano’s!
We decided to keep one fresh, it won’t last more than a week so it’s all good!
This is what I still have left. I’m not sure if I’ll just keep them fresh and take them to Oneg, OR …… try canning them whole and see what happens!! Anyway, that is my canning adventure for today. Second batch is still on the stove, tonight is going to be a long night!
