Canning tomatillo salsa

This is the recipe I use for canning homemade tomatillo salsa. I usually add a lil more hot pepper as we like it a little spicier. I also add about 2 times as much garlic as the recipe calls for.
Enjoy! Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

This is just the sort of pepper-hopping recipe I've been looking for tonight. I like tomatillos but have never cooked them myself, and all of the recipes I've found have looked pretty mild. Yours has some pizazz. Will report back.
