I have made cherry salsa, citrus salsa, various tomato salsa, salsa verde, even green tomato salsa. But I don’t know if anything beats this peach salsa.

It is sweet and spicy at the same time and goes with just about any food! A favorite of friends and family alike. I especially love it with my Steak and Chorizo Taquitos.

We have 4 peach trees, all of which are late season, so the end of August and beginning of September, I am up to my eyeballs in peaches! What to do with them all?

As many things as I can come up with! This year I made a delicious Peach Bourbon BBQ sauce. I also found a cool recipe online for Oscar Relish which is amazing!

What type of peaches should I use?

When canning peach salsa, the best peaches to use are the peaches you have. They will all make delicious salsa. The only thing I would advise, is that it is better to use peaches when they are in season.

Buying peaches from the grocery store, in the off season, is not advisable. The peaches have much less flavor than fresh, in season, peaches.

What you need

  • white vinegar – you could substitute bottled lime juice or lemon juice for the vinegar.
  • peaches
  • jalapenos
  • red onion
  • red pepper
  • garlic
  • parsley or cilantro
  • fresh oregano
  • honey
  • cumin
  • cayenne pepper

Allow jars to sit on counter undisturbed for 24 hours. Check seal. If lid flexes up or down, jar did not seal properly and should be stored refrigerated. Use those jars first.

Pro tips for success

  • Use whatever fresh, in season peaches, you can source. It’s important that they are in season, for best flavor.
  • Add vinegar to peaches immediately, to minimize browning.
  • You can use any bell pepper you have, red just adds a lot of color.
  • If you don’t like cilantro, substitute flat leaf parsley.
  • Use fresh, local honey, if you can find some. It is healthier and is suggested to help with seasonal allergies.
  • Dried oregano and parsley or cilantro can be substituted for fresh, you will need to add less.

Notes

Makes 6 pints.
Use any sweet, fresh, in season peaches you can find.
If you don’t have red pepper, use any color bell pepper you have. The red just looks great with the yellow peaches.
Try to find free stone peaches for easy preparation.
Add vinegar to peaches as soon as they are cut up and added to pot, to minimize browning.
Test lids for seal. Press center of lid down in the middle. If it flexes up and down, jar is not sealed.
If lids have not sealed, store those jars in refrigerator and consume those jars first.
Store sealed jars in a cool place.

  1. I’ve read about not using white peaches in any canning venture. Do you find that they are ok to use? I’ve used them in the past and have no problem but I’ve been reading that the ph level is not adequate for canning? surprises me cuz I’ve been doing it for about 5 years. Now it worries me! 🙁

    1. You could check your pH, is you have a pH meter. We don’t use white peaches since we have 3 yellow peach trees. If you have a white peach tree, we suggest contacting your local extension agency and see if they can help.

      There a couple other alternatives. You could pressure it but I fear it will lose a lot of texture. They other option is to can small batches and refrigerate them. They will last months, unopened, if refrigerated. Hope the helps
