Safe to mix green tomato and red for salsa?

Asked September 30, 2018, 12:15 PM EDT

I am scouring the net to find a definitive answer to: can I mix my home grown red tomatoes into the same variety green tomato for salsa? This would be home canned. I understand I cannot substitute green tomatoes for a red tomato recipe, but I am unable to find any tested safe direction for mixing the two. Any thoughts or direction is appreciated. I have already experimented with one small batch and am here to tell the tale, but I am not confident enough to gift it. Thank you ahead of time. Cheers
