Directions:
Directions:
Scald tomatoes to remove skins. I have a deep fat fryer that I use with water ONLY for canning.
Fill roaster with tomatoes 2/3 full and add onions, peppers (all kinds) spices, vinager, and salt.*Roast in oven for 2- 3 hours at 350º. Put on stove and cook additional ½ hour before putting in jars. When removed from heat add 13 oz. cans of tomato paste to thicken. (3 cans to roaster—4 cans to stock pot)
Fill scalded canning jars, wipe neck area and put lids on with screw on caps.
Use a pressure cooker to process salsa, 30 minutes at 13 pounds pressure. Make adjustment for your pressure cooker gauge and altitude.
When processing time is complete, let cooker come down to zero pressure naturally, remove lid and place HOT jars on counter to completely cool and seal.
*This can be done on stove top with stock pot following the same directions. When the tomatoes cook they will foam up and I cook until the foam cooks down and the peppers are tender about 30-45 minutes.

Personal Notes:
I dedicate this recipe to Aunt Lorea, we made salsa the year she died. Aunt Lorea, Grandma and I made 150 quarts that year.

2005 Grandma and I used a blaster burner outside to cook the salsa and did the processing on the stove inside.
