      Much like anything that freezes you risk the apples becoming mushy, but I would suggest making your apple slices smaller in order to not taste the mush in the apples as much. That should help quite a bit. Let me know how it turns out.

    This is THE BEST salsa I have ever made!!! I added 3 TBS of minced garlic and 2 TBS of lime juice. Pie apples seem to work best in my opinion. There is a perfect balance of flavor, hearty texture and heat. My family went through 6 qts in under a week, the first time I made it!!

    Hi There,

    I just used your apple salsa recipe as I was overwhelmed with crab apples. It turned out so well! I used approximately 50 crab apples. It is subtly sweet with a kick! I added a small amount of cilantro as well, so every once and awhile you get a burst of that flavour. Thank you so much for the recipe and I look forward to trying out others on the site!
