Green Pawpaw Pickles

Delicious snack, great as a side dish or on a sandwich. Very healthy as an entree. This pickles should are simply something super special. Try it and you will love it straight away :) I will make a video soon of all the steps how I do it but in the meantime, here is the recipe :)

Green Pawpaw Pickles
  • 2 kg green pawpaw, cleaned and grated on the largest holes of the grater
  • 1/4 cup salt 
1. Combine, cover the bowl and leave in the fridge over night. 
2. On the next day, place in a cheese cloth or clean tea towel, rinse under clean water and squeeze to get as much fluid out as possible and move back into large bowl. Spread 2 tbsp whole pepper and put aside. 

3. Bring to boil 3 cups of vinegar with 1.5 tsp salt and 1.5 cups raw sugar. Put aside.
4. Clean, grate and add to the prepared pawpaw:
  • 2 carrots
  • 2-3 large fresh turmeric fingers
  • 1 ginger knob
  • 1 capsicum (optional)
and
  • 2 large onions, red or white, cut thinly lengthwise
  • 10 cloves garlic, cut into slices
  • chilies (I leave the amount of chilies up to you), cut into thin strips 
5.  Combine all ingredients except the vinegar brine. 
6.  Move the veggie mix into clean and sterilized jars
7. Pour in the cool vinegar brine and seal the jars.
8. Leave in a fridge for at least 5 days before serving.
9. Enjoy!

You can keep it in fridge up to 2 months.
ENJOY!
