5 Gen Salsa
From Coke Bottles to Grocery Aisles
The family recipe for Kim Lanes’s salsa has been passed down for five generations, giving the unique condiment its name, 5Gen. Kim remembers making her mom’s great-grandmother’s recipe for ketchup and chili sauce every summer.
Back then, they stored and sealed them in recycled coke bottles to eat year-round alongside black eyed peas, cornbread, pork chops, and scrambled eggs. But Kim says the best part about her sauce is that it can be used to liven up any dish, as well as give a twist to the classic combination of chips and salsa.
Now, she has two varieties (original and thick and chunky) of her sweet and spicy, “not-youraverage jalapeño salsa.”
Made in Harrisburg, Buy the salsa at Moser’s and all three Hy-Vee locations in Columbia, C&S Grocery in Harrisburg, or online through her website and Facebook page.
