I am just cresting the half way  mark through my 12 days of Christmas decorating, craft and gift idea challenge and I hope you have enjoyed it so far.

Today, I share a recipe for my version of Merry Christmas Salsa.

The gift of my Merry Christmas Salsa to my family and very close friends each year has been going on for a long time, so I decided I am officially going to call it a tradition.

This recipe is made with canned tomatoes and I think it tastes as good as it would with fresh tomatoes:

2 cans of whole tomoatoes (28 oz)                                                                                                  2 cans of tomato sauce (7.5 oz)                                                                                                        1 red pepper chopped                                                                                                                        2 green peppers chopped                                                                                                                2 cups of white onions chopped                                                                                                2/3 cup of white vinegar                                                                                                                  3 tablespoons of granulated sugar                                                                                                2 teaspoons of coarse pickling salt ( I use regular table salt)                                            2 teaspoons of paprika                                                                                                                  1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder                                                                                                   1/2 teaspoon of oregano                                                                                                              1/4 to 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to your liking

Put all of the ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 1/2  hours.

I put mine in canning jars and give them a water bath of 5 minutes.

This will yield six to seven  1/2 pints of salsa.
