Instant Green Apple Pickle

I cannot live without pickles, I love all kinda pickles whether it is sweet or spicyyyy. No matter the weather, summer or winter I always have a big jar of pickles on my kitchen counter. I love to try variety of pickles.

Here is an instant version of Granny Smith apple or Green apple. The sinful items in Indian style pickles are according to me, the abundance of oil and salt. This instant kinda pickle is not that sinful. It uses very little oil and does not salt as preservative.

It hardly takes 10 minutes to prepare this pickle and lasts for about a week in an air tight container in the refrigerator. The juicy apples loaded with the correct proportion of spices makes it an interesting substitute for raw mangoes.

The bright red colour with seasoning of spices makes it so eye pleasing and I’m tempted to have it each time I pass by the jar😁. It’s a great idea for parties too and your guests will be fooled into thinking it is made of mangoesπŸ˜„.

Keep in mind that this pickle does not have a great shelf life, just store it in refrigerator and enjoy for a week.

Use sour apples or if the apples are not sour enough, add a tsp of lemon juice.

Adjust spices to suit your taste.
