Big Batch Salsa (For Canning)
210 mins (prep 90, cooking 120)
15 ingredients
12-14 servings
My mom and I have made this salsa for years. This is the easiest way to can a big batch of salsa. Instead of cooking pots full of salsa on the stove and worrying that it will scorch on the bottom, this method slowly simmers one batch in an 18 qt. electric roaster (a church dinner style roaster). This is a thick, medium heat salsa that is slightly sweet. It is a staple in my holiday gift baskets. In fact, I get complaints from friends, family, and neighbors when I do not include it or if I run out before the next canning season! This year I made four batches - 52 quarts.
