Let me start by saying that I am not a cook by any means.
Now, I love salsa and I always have, but mostly I just get store brands. I've had homemade salsa before and it tends to be a lot more flavorful, and for that reason I'd like to try my hand at making some.
What exactly is "salsa" defined as? What are the core ingredients? Is it cheaper to make it myself or to buy it from the store? If I make it myself, about how long is the shelf life?
I realize that salsa tends to be pretty simple to make, but I see so many variations, and internet searches bring me many different recipes.
What will I need to get started?
