7 cups ripe tomatoes, diced, seeded, peeled, and cored
6 green onions, sliced
2 jalapeno peppers, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons cilantro, minced
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup vinegar, 5% acidity
2 tablespoons lime juice

Combine all ingredients in a large sauce pot. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Carefully ladle hot salsa into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rim clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met, fingertip tight.

Process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

NOTE: When cutting or seeding hot peppers, wear rubber gloves to prevent hands from being burned.
