Bring on The Salsa!

I know that I have promised my salsa recipe and here it is. This is a huge thing for me! I usually don't give away my favorite recipes. I figured why not, I'm not the only one in the world eating it and it is probably the same as someone elses.

30 tomatoes peeled and chopped
2 green bell peppers
2 red bell peppers
10 cups chopped onions
10 cloves garlic
4-5 yellow banana pepper or 1 cup chopped jalapenos
1/2-3/4 cup sugar
2 cups vinegar or lemon juice
8 teaspoons pickling salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 large cans tomato paste

Simmer 1 1/2 hr, stirring often, at the end of cooking time add 1/2 bunch of cilantro if desired.Jar and process, 35 minutes for pint jars and 45 minutes for quart jars.Makes about 17 pints

It really is good and doesn't last long around my house so I hope someone will enjoy it.
