I can say that the habanera was the perfect heat! They both turned out fantastic! According to the heat index for hot peppers that I was reading about I would have had to put like 50 jalapenos in the salsa to get the same effect as 5 habanera. I hope Kroger carries habanera year round! Each batch made a total of 88 oz or 11 cups, which was canned in a variety of size jars in the waterbath canner.
I also had just about 1.5 pounds of frozen Tomatillos, so I made some Tomatillo salsa too. I only got 2 half-pint jars from that though. I haven't tried it yet. I did put a smidge of the habanera in there too.
And what the heck since I'm canning I might as well make the mess worth it so I made up some Bing Cherry preserves for topping ice cream with. Yum!
