Is it OK to freeze fresh salsa?

It may not look as fresh and perky as fresh salsa, but it can definitely be done.  It is a great alternative to canning.  There will be some watery liquid after it is thawed but you can drain off the liquid.

  1. This is a great salsa recipe. I live in El Paso, TX, and LOOOOOVE homemade salsa. When I do it, I also add tomatillos and banana peppers for added levels of flavor.
    Love seeing your posts. Keep cooking!!!

  2. We’ve been making Salsa for years, & was surprised that there was no mention of what it is that makes the BEST Salsa…the tomatoes used in it’s construction. Garden grown, ripe & fresh tomatoes are the best..& if you want the absolute best,try useing Heritage Brandywine tomatoes.
    Though not as pretty as a Beefsteak, they have better flavor, fewer seeds, & more pulp with less moisture, than the other strains of tomatoes we’ve tried through the years.
