Food Preservation: Simple Homemade Salsa for Canning

With tons of “safer-at-home” time on my hands, I’ve been canning and preserving foods weekly.  So far, since the pandemic began, I’ve made canned tomatoes, prickly pear jelly, peach butter, mango jam, and frozen creamed corn, peas, and even okra.

Today’s canning project was inspired by cute jars I found at the Dollar Tree and my love of salsa.  I figured, since I eat a ton of salsa, making it now and preserving it for later, just makes sense.
