Freeze Salsa?

Justbreathe226 Mar 21, 2011 07:25 AM

I made some homemade salsa yesterday without thinking that I was leaving for few days. Is it okay to freeze salsa? Will it taste okay when I defrost it?

    By all means, YES!
    Fresh, homemade salsa is a perfect candidate for freezing. If you consume it within 6 months, there's not even a noticeable texture change. Far superior and much easier than canning it.
    I always make double or triple batches of both my red salsa and my green tomatillo salsa, and freeze the extra.

      My canned salsa tastes better than my frozen stuff. Want the recipe?

      I would suggest that it would depend on the ingredients of your salsa. There so many variants. I wouldn't freeze a rough chopped pico de gallo. Also, depending on your ingredients, if they include salt, vinegar and / or lime juice, your salsa will keep just fine in the fridge for possibly much, much longer than you are expecting it to.
