If you are looking for fruity salsa, look no further than this Blueberry Salsa. Although it may sound strange, don't knock it until you try it. It has a fruity, sweet flavor from the blueberries, but it also has a spicy flavor from the jalapeños and an acidic flavor from the lime juice. Serve this blueberry salsa with tortilla chips or protein if desired. 

 

How do you add flavor to homemade salsa?

You can add flavor to homemade salsa by adding raw onions. You can also sauté the onions to sweeten their taste or add onion powder, cumin, and fresh or dried cilantro to jazz up the flavor of your salsa. 

 

Why is my homemade salsa bubbling?

If your homemade salsa starts to bubble, there's no need to panic and think that it's spoiled. Bubbles are a sign of fermentation. Salsa can be fermented at room temperature for two days. After one day, you should start to see little bubbles forming. This signals that good bacteria, which are beneficial for the gut, are developing. After two days, store the salsa in the fridge. 

 

How do you increase the shelf life of homemade salsa?

When it comes to storing homemade salsa, the fridge is the best option. When stored in the refrigerator, homemade salsa will last for 5-7 days. Make sure you keep the salsa in an airtight container in the coldest section of the fridge. If you store the salsa in the front of the refrigerator or the door, it will spoil faster since the temperature fluctuates in these areas. Storing the salsa at the back of the fridge will keep the salsa's temperature stable and extend its shelf life. 

 

Can I freeze fresh homemade salsa?

Yes, you can freeze homemade salsa. Although salsa will last indefinitely when stored in the freezer, it's best to use it within 2-4 months. After four months, the salsa's quality and texture will deteriorate.
