Easy Salsa Recipe for Can-It-Forward Day
Would you believe that I have been LOVING and using Ball Brand canning jars all this time for the blog from smoothies to sugar scrubs….and I’ve never canned before?
What’s a better time to get started than for International Can-It-Forward Day on August 1st! So to celebrate, I’ve made this Easy Salsa Recipe for canning, inspired by Can-It-Forward Day! And of course, scroll down for a fun Ball Brand giveaway!
I’ve always had a weakness for salsa. If it’s out, I’m eating it. The fresher, the better! But making a small puny batch of salsa just won’t do. I’d love to make a HUGE batch to last through all of my salsa cravings.
First Time Canning
Insert my intro to canning.
Ball Brand has all of the canning supplies you need to make delicious homemade foods from jams and jellies to syrups and salsas! I LOVE the Ball Brand Canning Discovery Kit, the perfect starter kit for the new canner (i.e. me). Add some fun lids (don’t you love the red?) and I have enough inspiration to get moving on my own homemade salsa.
Ready to dive into sweet, spicy and fresh all at the same time? Here’s the recipe:
