  • Salsa
  • This is the original recipe. I usually do a double recipe and still only use 2 cups of sugar (so 1 cup for a single recipe). This year I did it with jalapenos
  • but the one you had was pretty much this recipe exactly. You do need to do the long salt bath to remove water from the salsa. The veggies I just do by look as I am too lazy to do them exactly.
  • Salsa
  • • 12 ripe tomatoes
  • • 1.5 green peppers diced
