Have you always wanted to try a home canning project? I used to be that person, but then I realized that the only thing stopping me was me. About 15 years ago I made and canned homemade salsa with my husband and I have never looked back! I have gone on to make not only salsa, but pickles, and beets.
This is an easy and delicious salsa recipe and salsa is an absolutely great first project to try because salsa is so expensive to buy and it’s so easy to make at home! And canning season is not over yet…there is still lots of time to gather fresh produce and get busy!
This year my salsa-making was made all the more easier with this home canning kit from Canadian Tire. It came with not only a large canning pot, but all the tools & gadgets to make canning a breeze. I was so happy to receive the canning pot because I did not have a super large pot to use for canning! I wish that I had this kit when I first started canning because it made the whole process a lot easier! I used the canning pot for both making the salsa, and processing the jars. The canning kit not only comes with a pot, but also a canning rack, canning funnel, jar lifter, magnetic lid wands, pectin, jars and a DVD. Canadian Tire has a complete selection of canning items for all your canning needs, including not only this kit, but jars in various sizes, spices and more!
And now you will have a delicious salsa ready to serve with tortilla chips, nachos, tacos, fajitas, omelets, meatloaf, baked potatoes and anything else you like!
We love our homemade salsa and make it at least twice per year. It not only tastes great, but can be made at a fraction of the cost of the store-bought kind! And I cannot tell you how much easier this job is with the help of the canning kit from Canadian Tire! This kit is perfect for both beginner and experience canners and is a great investment for canning projects.

I make my own salsa (& guacamole dip), but I have never canned it. We do beets & asparagus, but the salsa I usually just make as needed. I really should can it, or even freeze, so we always have it on hand in a pinch. Thanks for sharing your recipe, a bit different from mine, but I will have to try it.
I don't know "Canadian Tire", but I l o v e the idea!!
and this salsa looks taaaasty!!!

I SOOO want to make my own salsa this year – you're giving me the confidence to try my hand at it! I'm running out of time!
I can't wait to try this, I have a ton of tomatoes I need to do something with before the end of the season.

My canned salsa hasn't done all that well lately, I'll have to try it your way!!

I didn't get many tomatoes from my garden this year, so I'll have to save this recipe for next year. My family loves salsa, so I'd like to be able to make my own.
