Canning Green Salsa and Enchillada Sauce

Tuesday, September 8, 2009 |
Our family is addicted to Pork smothered burritos, fresh salsa and enchilada sauce so this year as we planted our garden we kept that in mind. We planted rows of tomatillos, peppers and tomatoes. Last week we turned our tomatillos into tomatillo salsa. Check out how much fun we had.

Tomatillo Salsa
Makes about 4 (8 oz) half pints
You will need:
5-1/2 cups chopped cored husked tomatillos (about 2 lbs or 27 medium)
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 large)
1 cup chopped green chilies (about 2 medium) 
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp minced cilantro
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup vinegar
4 Tbsp lime juice
4 (8 oz) half pint glass preserving jars with lids and bands

1.) PREPARE boiling water canner. Heat jars and lids in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil. Set bands aside.
2.) COMBINE all ingredients in a large saucepan.
3.) HEAT to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
4.) LADLE hot salsa in to hot jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe rim. Center hot lid on jar. Apply band and adjust until fit is fingertip tight.
5.) PROCESS filled jars in a boiling water canner for 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.

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

That looks amazing, pork burritos are my favorite too! I will have to plant my little garden with this in mind next year :) I haven't ventured into canning yet, but would love to, probably next summer I will try. Thanks for being a motivation that I can learn how to can!!

I would love your enchilada sauce recipe too. Did you use pint jars? They look to big to be half pint.
