Peach Mango Salsa

Print Friendly and PDF

Costco sells this Peach Mango Salsa that my son really loves, but I'm not in love with the price! I was able to get my hands on some ripe peaches and thought I would try my luck at canning my own peach mango salsa. I found a recipe at for Peach Salsa II but it wasn't quite what I was looking for so I scoured the Internet and read a few other recipes and made my own. Please use your own wisdom when trying someone's home canning recipes. Its always best to check with your extension office to see if a recipe is safe before using! Thanks.  This recipe is heavenly! I used up an entire jar at our pinochle party!

Peach Mango Salsa

3 cups fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and chopped
1 mango - peeled, pitted and chopped
1 medium sized sweet onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1cup diced roma tomatoes
4 jalapeno peppers, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1 teaspoon grated lime zest
juice of one lime
1/4 cup white sugar
1 (49 gram) package fruit pectin crystals
3 1/2 cups white sugar
5 pint sized canning jars

     Sterilize jars and lids.
     In a large saucepan, combine peaches, mango, tomatoes, onion, pepper, cilantro, garlic, cumin, vinegar, and lime zest, lime juice. Stir together pectin and 1/4 cup sugar. Bring to a boil, and stir in remaining 3 1/2 cups sugar. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir for 5 minutes.
     Pour peach mango salsa into prepared jars, leaving 1/4 inch air space. Seal, and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.

  1. Hi there!! I am excited to try this recipe...thank you!!
    Can you double the recipe or is it just as easy to to single batches?

    1. I would just do one batch at a time. This does contain pectin so it will be slightly thick and not watery like regular canned salsa. Always gets rave reviews though

  2. Hi,
    I followed the recipe most of the way... I was home and found I only had a yellow pepper, so I added a little of this and that until it came to the sugar, I did add the initial 1/4 C. I used Raw sugar instead.
    Stopped and tasted.
    I found the recipe was so delicious I didn't need the other 3 1/2 cups
    I am really happy with this recipe but canners beware..... taste before adding sugar.
    You can make this wonderful food more naturally healthy.
    Thank you for listening :)

  3. Absolutely you should alter this to suit your own tastes and preferences! My son likes his super sweet... but I always do cut down on the sugar for the jars I make for myself. Hope you enjoy!
