Pickled Mango

One of my very very favorite snacks! I always make sure that I stock up on these when I'm in Hawai'i. I found the recipe on one of the best foodie sites out there: tsogb (the scent of green bananas). Thanks Santos! Storing here, so that I will have the recipe forever and ever and can make pickled mangoes until I'm blue in the face :) (Just to be clear, these are not the ones that are "dyed" red in color...let me know if you need help with a recipe for that one!)

Ready In:
20mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 4 cups green mangoes, peeled, depitted, and cut into spears (note you'll want unripe ones, not immature ones, which will be too acidic)
  • 1 pint vinegar (i use apple cider vinegar for something more piquant, rice wine vinegar when i want it mellow)
  • 1 - 1 12 cup sugar (white or brown, your choice)
  • 14 cup kosher salt (you can omit the salt if you want, and use less sugar)
  • water
  • optional spices to taste

  • fresh chili pepper (i use green arbol or serranos) (optional)
  • 1 slice fresh ginger (optional)
  • whole star anise (optional)
  • fennel seed (optional)
  • cinnamon stick (optional)
  • cracked peppercorn (optional)

directions

  • Pack mangoes into clean, widemouth jars.
  • Tuck a couple of chili peppers in with the mangoes.
  • Set aside.
  • Mix vinegar, sugar, salt and any spices you'd like to use in a saucepan; bring to a boil.
  • Stir constantly, until all the sugar and salt has dissolved, and the mixture becomes a bit syrupy.
  • Pour evenly over mangoes (if they are divided between jars, put equal amounts of syrup in each jar).
  • Fill the jars with enough water to just cover the mangoes.
  • Seal tightly, shake to mix, then refrigerate for several days, turning bottles intermittently.
  • Three days seems to be fine, but can take up to a week.
  • Keeps for an indeterminate length of time.
