Salsa Class

It’s late summer, tomatoes are at their height, sweet and hot peppers are turning color and you might even have some tomatillos on hand. Learn how to make salsa to your taste - spicy or mild, red or green, sometimes even with fruit! We’ll use recipes tested to safely can since salsa is an acidified food product, and you’ll learn how to water bath process the jars and take some jars of salsa home. Just imagine opening a jar of your own local salsa for the Superbowl (Broncos, don’t blow it) in February!
