Regular salsa, got the recipe from local news paper. It was seating in the refrigerator ans salt, I think, works as the preservtive. It was not nearly as potent as it was originaly, but it was still good to eat.

I only make a modest batch each time and try to use them up within a week.
Alright, you knew it was coming. Can I get the recipe? Pretty please?

Wow CharlieD - that must have been a heck of a lot of salt to keep a fresh fruit salsa edible for over a year.

Still, I have to say that keeping any salsa sitting around for a year & then eating it probably is not the safest thing to do. It's too easy to make another fresh one rather than take health chances.

Who said i was eating it, I just did not threw it away. No, there was not a lot of salt, I think like a t.spoon or something, as far as taste goes I would probably even added more salt.

Uh - you said it yourself CharlieD. How did you know it was "still good" if you didn't eat it? What exactly do you consider that to mean - "still good"? And if you didn't eat it, how exactly do you know it was "still good"? That you fed some to the dog & the dog didn't die - lol!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, the term "still good", quite frankly means EDIBLE. Perhaps you have another definition for it? "

Well, you didn't say that in your previous post, did you? You said "Who said I was eating it, I threw it away". Make up your mind.

Frankly, if you did in fact really taste this stuff after it sat in your fridge for over a year, you're not only lucky you didn't become ill, but are lucky to be alive.

Having nearly died from food poisoning, I know.

I said "I did not threw it away", and that was the reason it was seating in the refrigerator for so long. I kept hoping that somebody would eat it. Read carefully first berfore telling people to make up their mind.

Maybe I was lucky or maybe you were unlucky. I make this mmm, I don't know what it is called but it is kind of salsa, in the way. I make a huge badge(sp?) in the summer when vegies are cheap and use it almost till next summer.(the recipe is in the "ukrainian food" thread)

Now wait a minute. I'm not trying to "not be nice". But if someone posts that a fresh-fruit mango salsa is good to eat after sitting in the fridge for over a year, I reserve the absolute right to counterpost that that's a definite route to food poisoning. Not to mention - salt or not - that I can't believe it wouldn't be unappetizingly green.

If you take the time to scroll back thru these posts, I specifically asked CharlieD if perhaps his recipe was more of a chutney or pickle. I didn't recieve any response.

I'm not trying to be nasty - just trying to keep someone else reading these posts from thinking that a fresh-fruit salsa is edible after a year in the fridge. Like I said in my last post - food poisoning is something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

CharlieD said he tasted his Mango Salso after it had been in his fridge for over a year. Even though it might be over on the "Ukranian Foods" thread, perhaps he might want to repost it here. It might very well be more of a chutney or preserve - but a salsa it cannot be. Not if it was still good to eat after a year.

Again - I'm not trying to be unpleasant. I'm just trying to keep someone from ending up sick.

Sorry.
