  1. Would you happen to know how long this might keep in the fridge? Also, do you think this would be okay to freeze this?

    1. Jane,

      I kept mine in on the counter in a vinegar/oil container with a tiny open hole at the top for about one month. The high salt content acts as a natural preservative. I have never refrigerated it, and I would think freezing should be fine.

      Good luck,

    1. Donna,

      Kitchen Bouquet is gluten free. The makers of Kitchen Bouquet always list gluten containing ingredients on their labels. I had called them about a year ago and called them again today. Of course, they based the information that they provided me was on the barcode that I provide them.


  2. Thanks so much. I am gluten free, my daughter has issues with tomatoes, and my son is allergic to fish and seafood. This works for all of us! Wow! Can’t wait to try it!

  3. Thank you so VERY VERY much for this recipe. Not only am I gluten free, I am also allergic to seafood, and this recipe does not use anchovies. I cannot wait to try it. Love you forever.
