Peach & Tomato Salsa

Canning on Sundays

 

Welcome to my second “Canning on Sundays” post!

This week, since my plum tomatoes are finally beginning to ripen and the first peaches are hitting the farm stand shelves here in NH, I am going to share with you my favorite Salsa recipe.Peach Tomato Salsa

A number of years ago, when the first fruit based salsas started appearing in grocery stores, my husband and I decided to give them a try (before I started canning my own).  We instantly fell in love with a mango/tomato salsa.  Ever since then we have always opted for the sweeter fruit based salsa, for our nachos and any recipe that has called for the use of salsa.

Once I started canning and hit tomato season, salsa was high on the list of things to make, what’s a better way to enjoy your tomatoes all winter long? With our love of  fruit salsa, I had to find something that came close. Mangos aren’t local, but peaches are in season and local when the tomatoes are ripe. It was only natural to try a peach salsa.

The results were fantastic! The only downside was that we didn’t make enough that first year to make through all the way to the next tomato season.

We have now learned our lesson and always make sure to make a lot to get us just about all the way through!

Enjoy!

  2. You are so awesome. =) I wish I could grow enough veggies in my garden to do this sort of thing. I love salsa, I will have to try this recipe someday.

  3. I didn’t get a garden in this year, but next year I will. & learning to can would probably come in handy too because I am so making this!

  4. Wow, this is exactly the recipe I was looking for! It looks perfect. Do you know if dividing the ingredients in two to make half a batch would work just as well, in terms of canning safety?
