My plan was to can some and eat the rest right away. So much for that, we ate ALL of it the first day! Next time I'll make two batches, one to can and one to eat!

I think it's ok (as in safe) to substitute lemon or lime juice for the vinegar, if you don't care for the flavor. Keep the proportions, though. If the recipe calls for 1 cup of vinegar, substitute 1 cup of lemon.

I made this salsa last night with tomatoes and peppers from my garden. Delicious and very much to my family's taste. I have to reiterate what a poster below says though. Don't reduce the amount of vinegar or acid called for in the recipe. This is because you are not just water bath canning tomatoes but peppers, onions etc. These lower the Ph of the product and this is why so much acid is needed to safely can them. If you want to make this with less vinegar, you have to pressure can rather than water bath can it. To do otherwise is to risk botulism which is very nasty indeed.

This is similar to an uncooked salsa that my family loves. I decreased the vinegar to 1/2 cup and increased the lime juice to 1/3 cup. Instead of the garlic cloves I used 2 tsps garlic powder. I used Roma tomatoes which are less juicy and so made a thicker salsa. Came out delicious.

Great tasting salsa, My outcome with this recipe was that it produced six and a half pints of salsa not four.

It was a very good start, but way too much vinegar. You probably only need about a Tablepoon per pint to raise the acidity, especially when you include the lime juice. I will make it again but with much less vinegar. As with the rest of you, I added tomato paste, some black pepper, and a pinch of cumin. (As a guideline to acidity, the Ball Company, maker of all things canning, has a recipe for canned salsa that uses just 1 TBS vinegar per pint)

question or comment
I've canned salsa for 20 years now and this is basically the recipe I used less the lime juice and white vinigar, not cider. I'd never can pints under 20 minutes though.

this is not meant to be inapropriate..but everyone that reviews the recipe seems to think that they can change the vinagar or lime juice content wiithout harm as if it was in there for taste....there is a biological reason for the acid in the recipe without it you could be poisoned.. harmful bacteria is controlled by the ph of the product...there should be a disclaimer attached to the recipe explaining this for peoples protection.as for the recipe ive tried dozens and it is about the best so far.
