    This is a wonderful fruit salsa. I noticed another reviewer said the person submitting this recipe didn't know what salsa was and what it was supposed to taste like. I think the reviewer doesn't know what you're supposed to do with FRUIT salsas. This is wonderful on pork chops and chicken from the grill. This is NOT salsa to dip your chips in! Wonderful flavor, great way to use up the abundance of wonderful fresh local peaches on my kitchen counter. Thanks for sharing your recipe.  -  20 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe in 2004 and canned it. I cut the sugar and added hot peppers. We really like it and I will make it again this year. We like it with chips.  -  23 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    When I went on vacation at Rhode Island to visit my best friend, She was serving this salsa and it is the best salsa I have ever tasted! I wish I could rate it infinity!  -  25 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
