nectarine salsa : canned

Yummy this recipe is so perfectly versatile! After tasting just one bite of the leftover 1/4 cup that didn’t make it into cans for processing, I was sold and dreaming of a million uses for this sauce, other than the good old corn chip dip!

I was thinking: fruit salsa white bans and rice with coconut breaded tofu, maybe  slow roasted chicken with salsa, my sweetie suggested pizza sauce as he devoured the little left over bit, and promptly requested I get canning another batch!

The original recipe is for peaches, but as nectarines are sister fruit to the peach the swap is an easy one. I made this batch 1.5 times bigger and pumped up the heat, cause I like it hot… but you can replace any number of the hot peppers for sweet ones.

This batch size yielded 6 pints of perfectly hot fruit salsa.

You’ll need:

8 cups prepared peaches / nectarines

3 cups chopped red or white onion

6 jalapeno peppers finely chopped

2 red hungarian wax peppers chopped

3/4 cup loosely packed finely chopped cilantro or coriander

3/4 cup apple cider vinegar

4 Tbsp honey

3 cloves or garlic

1 tbsp cumin

1 heaping tsp cayenne

pinch of sea salt

Pit and chop nectarines, add other ingredients bring to boil in heavy bottomed pot, then boil gently for 5 .min.

Portion into sterilized jar leaving 1/4″ inch headspace.  Process  in hot water bath for 10 min.

Taste, ohh, ahh and then make more!

  1. Hi Shauna, did you take the peel off the nectarines first? the recipe sounds really yummy. Claire 🙂

    • Nope I did NOT remove the skin… and in fact I don’t often remove the skin of anything! Nectarine skin unlike peach skin is pretty un-offensive.
      I actually purchased though, just yesterday a peeler made for soft fruit skin, and I peeled peaches before drying them. It worked like a charm and made the task seem a little less arduous!

  2. We had the nectarine salsa last night on salmon that a co-worker caught and I traded for some of your famous HP sauce – ain’t life grand!!!

  3. Yummy!
