Milagro Modern Mexican is now jarring and selling four salsas, which debuted at the Webster Groves Farmers Market in early May and will be available at the market again in mid-to-late June (we'll keep you posted on the date). They include:
- Holy Jalapeno
- Smoky Chipotle
- Holy Habanero
- Roasted Poblano, Milagro’s signature house salsa
“We want to support the Webster market,” says general manager Craig Bielke. “The Webster community has always supported us. We want to return the favor.”
Located on Old Orchard Avenue, the market runs on Thursdays from 3 to 7pm. The Milagro crew runs the booth, where each salsa is showcased and ready for tasting. The chiles chef Jason Tilford selected for the quartet make each salsa distinctive. The colors sing, too, especially the sprightly green Holy Jalapeno and the electric orange Holy Habanero. Don’t worry about too much heat because Tilford’s balanced both to showcase each pepper perfectly. The jalapeno tastes bright; the habanero’s almost fruity and slightly sweet.
The muted shades of Roasted Poblano and Smoky Chipotle match their nuanced tastes. The flavors and textures in the house poblano salsa reveal themselves quietly. Try a small spoonful without chips to appreciate the sophistication of this salsa. Both flavors - jalapeno and smoke - come through in the chipotle salsa.
Unlike a fresh salsa which must be refrigerated and consumed within three days, Milagro’s jarred salsas are canned and preserved. Keep a selection in your pantry and be party-ready anytime. Add a spoonful to soups, salads and sides for a flavor boost. Let your imagination wander south-of-the-border and sauce something. Once you open these restaurant-quality salsas, however, store leftovers in the fridge and use within a week.
