I hate letting things go to waste, and so discovering a bruised and over ripe mango plus a few past their best chillis in the veg rack was a little upsetting, however it was an excuse to make some mango pickle. It’s a fresh pickle so won’t keep long, but is super tasty.
You will need
- One large mango
- A couple of chillis
- A cup of cider vinegar
- Half a thumb of ginger
- Coriander seeds
- A clove of garlic
- Skin the mango, chop up flesh roughly and discard anything too past
- Fine chop the garlic, ginger and chillis
- Bring the vinegar to the boil and dump in all the ingredients.
- Pop a lid on it and reduce to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes.
- Leave it to cool
The pickle is great with lots of things and was a spicy sharp accompaniment to the chicken pizza chips. It even made a great marinade for some beef because of the digestive properties of mango.
