Frozen Homemade Salsa

Sandy Sebold


What a great way to use up all those homegrown tomatoes, right now! Whenever I have an abundance of ripe tomatoes, I whip up some salsa and freeze in freezer bags to enjoy all winter long! Can be made spicy or mild depending on how many jalapeno seeds used. NOTE: Please remember to wear disposable gloves when handling jalapeno's!

How to Make Frozen Homemade Salsa


  • 1Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Put tomatoes into water for approx. 1 minute to loosen skins. I don't put cherry tomatoes in water since they are small. Drain tomatoes, peel and crush. Chop cherry tomatoes in half.
  • 2Mix all crushed and chopped tomatoes, garlic powder, lemon juice, salt, cayenne pepper and cumin into a large pot. Whip to desired thickness. Bring to a boil. Add red, white, and yellow onions, jalapeno pepper and cilantro. Continue boiling, uncovered,slowly until vegetables are soft and mixture has reached desired consistency, about an hour. Remove from heat.
  • 3Let cool and place 1 to 2 cups of salsa in quart size freezer bags. Lay bags flat and release any air in them and freeze flat.
