  1. Thoroughly rinse all ingredients and use a blender or food processor to blend sofrito in batches.
  2. Start with the onions because they provide a lot of liquid when blended. Add the vinegar, as needed, while blending the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Store sofrito in a sealed container. It will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. Freeze any remainder for up to 6 months.


Store your sofrito in a sealed container like a mason jar or glass tupperware. In the refrigerator it will keep up to 2-3 weeks (the vinegar helps preserve it). In the freezer, it will keep up to 6 months. Since a batch of fresh sofrito is usually too much to use right away, it’s a good idea to freeze most of it. You can also use an ice tray to freeze sofrito in easy ready-to-use portions. Each ice cube measures approximately 1 tablespoon.
