Hi Rhymbird, this is a fresh salsa which should ideally be eaten fresh and not canned. If you want to make canned salsa, you will need about 6 pounds of blanched fresh or canned whole tomatoes. Peel the skins off the tomatoes. Core and finely chop the tomatoes or place in food processor and puree until chunky. Then place the tomatoes in a pot and add 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1 packet of salsa seasoning mix. Stir well. Simmer on medium high for about 30 min. In the meantime, you can place 4 mason jars, rings and lids in a large pot of boiling water for 10 minutes. This will sterilize the jars. Remove the jars lids and rings from the boiling water and drain. Pour the salsa into the jars, leaving 1-inch from the top. Wipe the rims with a damp clean cloth. Then place lids and rings on the jars and seal. Only tighten the rings finger-tight and make sure not to touch the insides of the rings or lids. Finally place the jars back in the pot of boiling water for 50 minutes. Then remove from boiling water, let them cool and seal. If the seal remains the salsa will keep for 1 year.
