Roasted Salsa Roja Canning Recipe

I love this salsa recipe! This is the second year of making roasted salsa. The roasting of the tomatoes gives a deep smoky flavor all throughout. This is salsa recipe is one where you can customize it by how spicy you like it.  I tend to do a medium heat, my husband prefers hotter.  If you are canning this recipe, please use less fresh herbs and garlic as it will turn bitter the longer it sets.
