Matt and Sheri's SALSA

ok.. so basically.. there is no recipe for our salsa..
but here's what we do..

1 1/3 cups APPLE CIDER VINEGAR ( DO NOT use a different kind.. this is IMPERATIVE)
9 cups chopped up plum tomatoes
6 cups of peppers chopped up.. we use whatever we have around.. we combine jalapenos, banana peppers, sweet green peppers, carribean hot peppers.. whatever we have around.. hots first and then fill the measuring cup with sweet green peppers
half an onion
a handful of cilantro
clove of garlic
tsp sea salt

so I put this into 500 ml jars and can them for 20 minutes. hasn't killed anyone so far. :)

you could use the store bought salsa mix. this is what's in it..
. Ingredients: dehydrated vegetables (green and red bell peppers, onion, and garlic), salt, spices (including garlic and onion powder), tomato powder, corn starch, yeast powder, guar gum, xanthan gum, beet powder, natural and artificial flavour, and silicon dioxide.

but I really don't see the point.... not sure why I want guar gum and xanthan gum in my salsa.. or silicone dioxide for that matter..
