My salsa recipe that I have used for years is all of a sudden having a very, strong vinegar taste. I have always used vinegar. It is now uneatable.

It could be the salsa wasn't sealed well or the area in which it was stored. Hard to say really. Did you use a different type of vinegar?

Thanks all. Those are some good tips. But does anyone know why this happened. I knew immediately before opening there was a problem because of the white foam at the bottom.

Last year I canned salsa, but most of it ended up too vinagery. Does anyone have an idea on how to take away the vinegar taste. I have about 30 pints that I hate to throw out, but my family won't eat it, and I don't blame them!

I have also used salsa in pasta recipes. See if you could use some up that way. For example, try salsa mixed with macaroni and melted cheese on top. (05/19/2005)
