I was gifted several jalapeno peppers yesterday. Given the fact that my tomato vines are finishing up for the year, I decided to harvest up the green ones to make a salsa verde.
Canning salsa, I added lime juice 2T/qt to top them off prior to water bath canning to increase acidity because a majority of the tomatoes were orange and yellow. I used the dishwasher as a placeholder for clean washed jars ready to be filled.
I made pickled garlic dill green beans using water bath canning. I added red pepper flakes to hopefully give them a little spice flare, and I didn't have any brown mustard seeds so I used yellow instead.
I use the ingredients in the amounts I have on hand and a recipe as a loose guide for ingredients. The most important factor is the added lime juice to maintain high acidity to prevent botulism.
Thanks for the recipe. You can edit your original post by clicking on the three dots at the top right side of the original post or please provide the link to that post when you are adding to a previous post.
