Anyone has experience of making pickle with the localy available raw mangoes in USA. Which one are best suitable for pickle making.


I know this is a vary late reply, but I peruse these old posts sometimes so I figure it's just adding to the info....  I'm not sure what exactly is meant by "localy (sic) available mangoes" but I will assume this to mean "in the grocery store".  Well, most often they are not green!  They may be green on the outside, but they must be green and firm on the inside.  I will make a salad with these (Thai) or a curry (South Indian), but I think a pickle may not work as they are most often in the mid-ripe stage, and are slightly sweet, and starting to soften.  However, lately, I've been seeing some pretty green ones in the Supermarket, and Mexican Grocery stores (They do use green mangoes in Mexico, but I hardly see them in the markets!).  They do have them in Asian Markets (Southeast Asian, or Indian), but the nearest one is quite a drive for me.  Having said that, I think there are some Indian Pickles you could make with partially ripe mangoes - perhaps some of the sweet ones.  Lastly, when I lived in Florida, green mangoes were of course available locally (in my backyard, and all through the neighborhood). Many were not picked, as there were just too many!

I just added another pickle recipe: Sour Tomatillo Pickle Achar.  This one is made with non-traditional ingredient - tomatilloes, but it is very similar to other sour Indian fruits and vegetables. Tomatilloes are very easy to grow and are extremely prolific for me, thus I wanted to find a way to use them.  http://forums.egulle...o-pickle-achar/

Today I bought something I had never heard of or imagined: Bangladeshi olive pickle.


Olives, oil, salt, garlic, ginger, cumin, chilli, coriander, turmeric, mustard, aniseed.


PRAN brand.


The olives in it are cut up but the fragments are gigantic. The whole fruit must have been a couple of inches long.


Is this a traditional condiment?

How would it normally be served?

Are olives common in Bangladeshi cuisine?


All information welcome. Preferably before I finish the jar. So soon. :biggrin:


ETA I know that Bangladesh is not in India. This seemed the most appropriate topic...
