3 cups chopped, seeded Cubanelle, Anaheim or Sweet Banana Peppers
2 cups chopped onions

6 cloves of garlic (recipe doesn''t say - but likely minced)
1 can tomato paste
2 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup chopped cilantro


Cut jalapenos in half. Discard ribs and seeds; chop finely to make 1 cup.

In large heavy non-aluminum saucepan combine everything except cilantro and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, stirring often for 1 hour or until thickened; place 1 tbsp of salsa on a plate and tilt the plate - the salsa should flow slowly in one stream;add cilantro and cook for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, fill boiling water bath canner about two thirds full with hot water - bring to just below a boil and keep it hot. Wash and rinse canning jars and bands. A few minutes before filling the jars, bring pot of water to a boil, boil new lids for 5 minutes, turn off heat and leave the lids in the water to use right away.

Using a funnel fill each jar with hot salsa, leaving a 1/4-inch headspace, cover with lids, screw on bands firmly without forcing.

Place jars in rack set on edge of canner, lower filled rack into water, pour in enough simmering water to cover jars by 1 - 2 inches; cover ca
