    Canning Question

    Yes, I know it's late in the year to be thinking about canning, but just got a challenge and I want to be able to can the results, if possible.

    The challenge is to make a salsa that my future-son-in-law and his best friend would break out in a sweat when they try it. I have the recipe, and know that the secret to how "hot" it can get is in the cooking. There will be some of it I want to take some out and can it while it's still in the "mild" stage.

    While I haven't done much canning in my life, I seem to remember to get a good seal on the canning jar is to give it a hot water bath. In the case of this salsa, would I need to give the jars it's bath as well, or will canning it while hot will allow the seal to happen? And if I'm able to get the seal w/o the bath, will it be safe to store in the cupboard?

    Read this article, and see what you think.

    You might want to just freeze your salsa, if more heat adds more "heat".
