    2-4 days in my place.  Starts to get mushy after that, however I use only fresh ingredients.  If cooked you have a longer shelf life.

    It'll go a week here, and we've gone almost two. Your nose will tell you ....

    salsa is typically cooked.  We canned some 2010,2011 and we have ~20 jars left.
    pico de gallo is just fresh chopped stuff.  is only fresh for a day or two, three max.

    That being said, after we open a jar, if we are eating other stuff, it will be good for a week or so.  You will know when it goes bad, it usually starts growing green stuff..
  • If lucky we will have enough leftover for the next day.

    We just canned some a few weeks ago. I love canning fresh sauce and salsa. We just started canning this summer and I'm obsessed.

  • I do mine fresh but have found that in large batches if you add a small amount of white vinegar, it will help it last longer without giving you the vinegar taste.
