I have lots of tomatoes. Can fresh tomato salsa be frozen?
By kscheele39 from Plymouth, NE
Yes it can, but not for too long, maybe a couple weeks. You can can it, and it will last a long time. There are recipes online at www.allrecipes.com if you want to do that.
Yes it can, however, the tomatoes will get mushy upon thawing.

Can salsa made with fresh tomatoes be frozen?
By Tina from KS
I am not sure about freezing it, but we always canned it and the shelf life is amazing. Be sure and learn how to properly can before doing so. It is very important to do it the right way so the food doesn't make you sick once you do eat it. (06/06/2010)
I freeze mine. The only thing is it will get a little watery on top as it thaws, but usually you can just stir it up well after it is completely thawed. (06/08/2010)
Can you freeze store bought salsa? I have a large bottle and hate to see it go to waste!
I read a tip that if you freeze picante sauce, and then let it thaw, it actually improves the flavor. Since picante and salsa are almost the same, I would think it would be fine. I haven't had the chance to try this yet.
We buy half-gallons for our food concession, then freeze what's left until the next engagement. No problems. (06/12/2005)
Harlean from Arkansas posted info regarding freezing fresh salsa. My question, how is it, once it is thawed? I do not want mushy salsa. Appreciate any feedback available.

I've frozen homemade salsa in ice cube trays, then put into baggies and it did fine. (08/29/2006)
