These last ones will change the taste of the salsa I prefer using the fermented juice from a previous batch of salsa or other item that will not interfere with the flavor.
Step 4: Jar It
Clean all jars and utensils well, put salsa into jars leaving 2 - 3 inches of head space. Use an air lock or close lid and leave at room temperature for a few days, until bubbly and fermented. During this process every day give it a stir with a wooden or plastic spoon until redistributed and submerged under the liquid. Place on something to catch any leaks, if it is very warm out place jars in a bowl of water to prevent it from culturing to fast. When it tastes nice and zingy to you, store it in the refrigerator, as long as the particles stay submerged it should last a month in the fridge.
