Last year we bought an All American 921. This weekend we were determined to get our feet wet. We stopped at a local farmers market and bought all the tomatoes he had. Thumbed through one of the canning books we had and found a recipe for some salsa we wanted to try.
Man, this is serious work! Very Happy 
 First batch we did a chunky style salsa and it came out really good. It's not hot at all and the tomatoes we used actually give it a sweet flavor. Think they are Roma's.
2nd batch is on the stove now and we added more chile's to it than the first batch. It is a little bit warmer, (but not a whole lot), and it still has that sweetness to it.
All in all we are pleased with the outcome and we still have A LOT of tomatoes left. We are going to pick some okra from my moms garden and put up some crushed tomatoes and okra in the next couple of days! Our very first attempt at canninng...success! 3170584802

Pictures please lots of them if possible.

 Some lesser mortals like me are looking for a real good quality jar that seals first time round in the canner process , either hot water bath canning or canning under pressure . .

 I say this because I live in a different part of the world where what you use may be similar to what is locally available .

I made and canned my first salsa this summer and is it ever good. You will become addicted fast and not be able to keep up with the demand. Very Happy 

Glad to know that you are having good luck with your first experience.

Thanks everyone. The 1st batch of salsa is chunky and definitely sweet. We put the 2nd batch in the Vita-Mix before cooking and added some more chile's and it's a little warmer but not by much.

@Plantoid: The jars we used were pint jars made my Kerr. We followed the directions given in the book we took the recipe from and all 10 of our jars sealed within a few minutes of taking them out of the water. We used a water bath this time and we are now looking for something we can use to try our All American 921 with next time.

EDIT: I didnt take a lot of pics of our process. We were too focused on NOT screwing it up! :DI do have these 2 shots though. The first one is just of the tomatoes and chile's we used. We also added garlic, onion, lemon juice, cumin...not sure what else though. We only used one of these bowls of tomatoes and we got 10 jars of salsa. We still have the other half waiting to be made into something yummy!

Thanks for the picture of the screw top sealing jar ..
That's hopefully going to be one of  our next projects as the Kilner clip over lidded jars we currently have are not that good .
 
We hope to find something like that this side of the pond at sensible prices or travel to Northern Germany in summer next year to buy numerous cases of several different sizes of "  Weck jars "  and loads of seals & lids .

Congratulations and they look so wonderful!  I have had great success with the screw on lids and rings.  No canning done this year, all eating and freezing.
