How long does fresh salsa keep
August 24, 2011 5:33 PM   Subscribe

Homemade salsa with vinegar in it - how long will it keep?

Tomatos, garlic, red pepper, red onion, cilantro, parsley, jalapeno, apple cider vinegar, tabasco. Refrigerated.

How long? It smells and tastes fine. I think it's probably 12 days old?

It's probably fine. I have had homemade salsa that has kept for longer, though it doesn't taste as good after a week or so. Generally a couple of weeks is okay. Sounds like good salsa.

Is it fresh salsa, like pico de gallo, or cooked?

I've found that most raw tomato-based salsas taste fermented and even slightly carbonated when they start to go, but even then they're still safe to eat.

Food processed. Not cooked. I ate a little last night. Feel fine.
