Is salsa covered under the MD Cottage Food Law?
Hello, I see in the 2018 Maryland Cottage Food Business Law that the following is permitted to be made and sold without licensing, as long as you stay under $25,000 per anum in revenue: >High-acid fruit jams, preserves and jellies (Made only from Oranges, Nectarines, tangerines, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries, cherries, cranberries, strawberries, red currants, or another fruit mixture that produces an acid-canned product at 4.6 pH or less.) I just want to clarify on the working of this. The food we intend to make is picante salsa, made from only the following ingredients: fresh tomatoes, fresh jalapenos, fresh habaneros, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, white vinegar. Would this be covered under the Maryland Cottage Food Law?
