Notes

  • Here's a tutorial on how to cut mangoes. And how to peel peaches
  • Selecting the fruit: 
    Check for ripeness: they should be slightly soft to the touch and have a fragrant, fruity aroma when ripe. Avoid peaches or mangoes that are too hard or too soft.
    Avoid bruises or blemishes: they should be free of any bruises, cuts, or soft spots, as they can indicate that the fruit is damaged or overripe.
  • Can you freeze fresh mango peach salsa? Yes, you can, in an airtight container for a month. But it will not have the same texture after you thaw it. It tends to be more watery. 
  • How long does this salsa last in the fridge? 3-4 days if kept in an airtight container. The fruit will start releasing juice, and it will soften a little. Add salt at the last moment if making it ahead. 
  • How can you tell if your fruit salsa has gone bad? Before eating, check for signs of mold or dark spots. Don't eat it if it's watery with a whitish hue. And, of course, smell it. A salsa not apt for eating will have a strong, fermented (boozy), foul odor.
