Homemade canned salsa will last for up to one year if stored in a cool, dark place.

Making and canning homemade salsa is a great way to use up an abundance of fresh summer tomatoes, but only some recipes are appropriate for canning. Always be sure to look for recipes where the salsa is cooked before it’s canned (cooking helps kill germs and prevents spoilage and foodborne illness) and then follow the instructions in the recipe exactly. Sterilizing the canning jars and lids, cooking the salsa for the correct amount of time, and then cooling and storing the jars properly are all important factors in making your recipe delicious and safe to eat.
