I "Help" Mamarazzi to Make Pickled Mango

It had been ages since Mamarazzi made pickle Mangoes

Partly it's because these tiny mangoes  which the Malay call as Mempelam are hard to find in the city.

She found some when we went back to AH Mah's house during school holidays. She used 5 to make the Sambal Empelam while the rest were made into pickles.



 
First she peel off the skin. Some people don't peel the skin coz they like to have it with skin.

 Cut them into half and take out the seeds. She was very happy as the seed was "young". The "old" ones are pretty bad coz the seeds would be too hard to cut into half

 Soak the mangoes in warm salt water for about half an hour.

 Oh ya....by the way, that's me sulking  ...

 Don't wanna look at Mamarazzi coz she don't wanna lend me her camera to snap photos of the mangoes.

 Finally she let me "help" her. Hold the mangoes while she snap photos.

 and arrange the mangoes.

Then kacau point to various ingredients when she snap photos. The pickle mangoes that she makes is not the usual with vinegar, sugar and cili.

Instead she add some asamboi and some tree barks/roots that the Chinese call "Kam Choh"(Direct translated as Golden weeds)

 Put them in a glass jar.

Fill the jar with 1/3 full of sugar. Ya...not so healthy with all the sugar but what to do? If less sugar the pickle will be too sour.


Guess, eating this once in a long time should be okay gua....

 Add a bit of vinegar to "melt" the sugar.

We managed to get 3 jars of pickled mangoes. Ate them after a week....Ahem ahem.....now left only on jar. Yummy yummy.....wondering when will Mamarazzi be able to find some more of this "mini" Mangoes.

      Pickled Papaya is a bit difficult. Have to get the just right papaya else it would not be crunchy

  15. she just uses sugar and little chili padi, just like that and no liquid also.. because the mango will "out water" later mah..

    ReplyDelete
  16. i like that because it's the natural sourness of the mangoes, and not the strong taste from the vinegar mah..

  17. soaking in warm salt water is to make the mangoes more crunchy right??
