I LOVE SALSA. I mean I could eat it for days on end and never get tired of it. In fact I have shared my “kick butt” salsa recipe before. The problem is when I make it, even when I half it makes A LOT. Which meant it it over a few days or it goes bad. Salsa going bad is a travesty. I mean look at this yumminess:
We absolutely can’t waste something that yummy looking, right??!! It’s easy to get burnt out on even the best salsa when you eat it for days on end, but eat it we had to as not to waste.
A few weeks ago I was reached out to, asking if I would like to try out some canning supplies. My mind immediately jumped to my salsa and it was a “Yes, please” moment. Once the supplies arrived I made my salsa, much to the happiness of my and my families taste buds. I took a portion of it and got all my supplies ready to can, here are the steps I used.
- Heat salsa and add (while hot) to each jar, making sure to wipe away any that was on, not in, the jar.
- Put on the lids and added to canning pot, which had the rack in the bottom so the jars would be evenly heated.
- Add more water, until it was covering the jars by about 2 inches.
- Bring to a rolling boil.
- Boil about 15 minutes.
- Remove jars and let them cool on a rack.
- Voila I now have salsa saved for down the road. I can freeze for way down the road or refrigerate for sooner usage. The jars are perfect travel size as well.
