In our current 16 and 48oz sizes, we get 45 days shelf life from the date of manufacture. Sometimes our salsa gets close to the ‘Use by’ date and I’m here to assure you, it’s still great to eat.
Follow this tip and you’ll use every drop: as Salsa de Rosa gets close to the ‘use by’ date, cook with it. Find a recipe in our cookbook, follow the easy instructions and presto change-o – a great meal.
Think about it. As our salsa gets older, nature takes over and things begin to break down. Water leaks out of the vegetables as they soften. Pretty soon, things are soft, not crisp. The flavor changes a little as the vinegar takes over.
Now compare that to what happens when you cook with our salsa. The cooking temperature heats up the vegetables. Water evaporates out and they begin to soften. Before long the veggies are soft and no longer crisp. The flavor melds with whatever it’s with.
So here’s the deal, if you don’t mind cooking with fresh Salsa de Rosa, by all means, go ahead. We all know your meal will turn out great. But personally, I like eating fresh salsa with chips or on food. Cooking is a secondary option.
To me, the smart money is on using (nearly or) expired salsa to cook with. It stretches my budget, too. And let’s face it, the results to the salsa are the same; soft vegetables that infuse their delectable flavor into whatever they’re cooked with, creating a wildly flavorful meal that you won’t hardly believe. Once you’ve cooked with Salsa de Rosa, you’ll keep doing it.
Take a risk. Experiment. Ro[sa] always says, “if you like different things by themselves, try putting them together and see how they taste.” Pretty simple concept, really. Make something today.
