    Your salsa and a pint or so of the chili mixed with melted Velveta poured over some corn chips will make a fine mess of nachos. Add lettuce, scallions, chopped chillies, etc. to taste. Last year the BIL gave us a large bag of scupernong grapes the the wife/head chef made jelly of them. I think the best grape jelly I've ever had. This year I planted a concord grape vine but the early drought has hampered it's growth. It has only 5 grapes on it and I promised one to the neighbor (individual grapes, not bunches). Maybe next year. Is it lunch time yet?

    45Nut appears to be on the right track, that is basically how I make the stuff, it is all personal taste anyhow. I don't profess to have the "secret" to salsa, just stuff we like.

    My wife and I have canned the usual stuff, pickles, beets, pickled fish, salsa, stuff like that for years.
    Last year I got a Pressure Canner for Fathers Day. Damn thing has been working overtime ever since.

    I have canned Venison, Venison stew, Chuck roasts, Beef Stew, Vegetable soup, Green beans, Wax beans, Elk. I even Pressure canned a bunch of Cream of Fish soup. Found out after I did it that creamed products do not can well and should be avoided. This week I am going to can something called South Americans.

    Wish I had started Pressure canning decades ago!

    Please give more information on canning pickled fish. My kids and I love pickled herring and would be interested in what fish you use and how you prepare it.

    I just pickled some jalapenos and baby carrots with sambal oelek and red pepper flakes (fire crackers). Should be ready in four weeks.

    I just pressure canned some home-made Bratwurst. Interesting. My wife says do not do it again, both of my son's say do it. I like it, but the texture is very different.

    Canning a case of salsa today. Tomatos and peppers did very well in my raised bed garden so I'll add a bit of chopped onion, eye of newt and hair of frog and a bit of mystery to the mix, and use the water bath method to can these 12 pints.

    If you're careful in your canning, you never bring it back up. :barf:

    Peaches, and blackberries. I have put up some marinara sauce this year too, both frozen, and canned. Waiting on the muscadine, and figs to ripen.
