Okay, here goes.... we moved a few months ago, and I unpacked some boxes, and discovered some salsa canned 9 years ago! The lids are good, seals are good, doesn't appear to have discolored much..... is this safe do you think? I posted this ? last night, but cannot find it now on the forum.....

thanks, any help would be appreciated!

PS-- it is a extension office recipe, so I know it is safe to can, my only concern is the age.....

If it was a safe recipe and the right method was used, then it is just a quality issue, not a safety issue.
