Freezer Peach Salsa

Yield: 3 Cups


  • 5 cups peeled, pitted and chopped peaches
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp ground chipotle powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Wash freezer safe containers in hot soapy water, rinse and set aside to dry. Toss peaches with sugar and lime juice; let stand for 1 hour or until some of the juices are released.
  2. Add peach mixture, red onion, red pepper, jalapenos, vinegar, chipotle powder, cumin and salt to a large stainless steel high-sided skillet set over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Continue to boil gently, stirring frequently, for 15 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cilantro. Cool completely.
  3. Ladle into freezer safe containers and cover with lids. Freeze for up to 3 months or refrigerate for 3 to 5 days.


To easily peel peaches, score the bottom with an “X” and blanch in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds or until skins start to loosen. With slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool and slip off skins.

Serve as a sauce with grilled chicken, pork or fish for a quick dinner. It can also be served with crostini and Brie cheese for a simple appetizer.
