Peel, seed, and coarsely chop tomatoes (you should have about 14 cups). Place tomatoes in a large colander; let drain 30 minutes. Place tomatoes in 8-quart Dutch oven. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 45 to 50 minutes or until thickened (consistency of chunky salsa); stir frequently. Stir in Anaheim peppers, jalapeño peppers, onions, cilantro, garlic, vinegar, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Return to boiling. Remove from heat. Cover and chill in refrigerator at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.* Makes about 8 cups salsa.
For longer storage:
