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 if you want to do that.

Yes it can, however, the tomatoes will get mushy upon thawing.

Yes. Stick it in the freezer. It will freeze and become hard as ice.

Can you freeze store bought salsa? I have a large bottle and hate to see it go to waste!



Freezing Salsa

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)

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)

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)
