Spicing Up our Christmas Gifts: Canning Salsa

This holiday season we decided to spend a little less money and little more time and effort into our gift giving.  One way we did this was to make homemade salsa and then canning it as a gift.

So to get started, I did some research online.  And found how to can soups, sauces and of course, salsa.  I also found some great recipes online for making our salsa too.

Step 1: The usual suspects: Vegetables

Step 2: Wash and sterilize your canning jars.

Step 3: Hire some good help. Making them wear a funny hat is a bonus.

Step 4: Make your salsa.

Step 5: Can your salsa.

Find a good website to learn how, there are many ways.  I think the best way is with a canner or pressure cooker, neither of which we had.  So, we did what we could, tried it and can only hope that it worked!
