    Chipotle Peach Salsa sounds so good! We’ve had a great peach harvest in the Pacific Northwest and what a great way to have them! Still new to this canning stuff. I usually just do refrigerator or freezer jellies because I’m not quite sure how to do the water baths and sealing yet. Thank you for all of the great info and recipes on this site.
