Saucy... Taco Sauce without Corn Syrup

Taco Sauce Without Corn Syrup
Found on Canning Craze

13-1/2 cups pureed tomatoes or 111 oz can diced tomatoes 

1/4 cup minced onion 

1-3/4 cups vinegar 

1/4 cup garlic powder or 1/8 cup minced garlic 

2 Tablespoons salt 

2 Tablespoons paprika 

2 Tablespoons sugar 

1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper 

6 chopped jalapenos or 12 oz jar jalapeno slices 

Tomato paste, optional for thickness (we use 2 - 6 ounce cans)

Hot water canner

Large sauce pan or soup pot


Funnel Jar Lifter

Jars, lids, rims Blender or Immersion Blender

Mix all ingredients together in the large sauce pan. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Blend sauce with immersion blender or place hot sauce in blender.

Get your jars ready. Jars should be clean, can run through the dishwasher or wash in hot soapy water. Place funnel on top of jar and fill leaving 1/4 inch head space. Wipe rims of jars clean with warm wash cloth. Place lids on jars and tighten with rims. 

Process in a boiling-water canner for 30 minutes. Remove jars with jar remover carefully. Place hot jars on level surface. I cover my counter top with a double layered kitchen towel and place jars on top.Using a hot pad or glove, check that the rims are tightened. As the jars cool, you will hear a "ping" when the lid seals. Make sure all of your jars have sealed. They are sealed if the button in the middle of the lid in depressed. If you have any jars that have not sealed, you can reprocess them or store the jar in the refrigerator for use. 

Makes 10 pints or 5 quarts. 

You can buy a large can of tomatoes at any warehouse store or check your grocery aisle for bulk foods.

Please check with your local extension office for any changes due to altitude for times or temperatures. Above instructions are for elevation 1000 feet or below.
