So What made me make an Apple Pickle?

This week Kalyani from Seduce your Tastebuds announced the theme for this Monday’s Foodie Monday bloghop as #210UltaPulta. She challenged us to think out of the box and make something different from the usual we do with any ingredient.

For Example a sweet as a savoury or a savoury as a sweet. The challenge was a bit difficult as I did not wanted to make anything sweet. The only thing that was coming to my mind was converting chocolate to savoury. I had few ideas with it, but then last week my son had picked this fresh green apples along with his friend from a farm. I am so thankful to my friend for sharing this fresh green apples from the farm.

What can be done with green apples? Yes there are loads of recipes for crumbles, pie’s, smoothies etc. Even I have shared this Fudgy Apple Brownies and Sugarless & Vegan Apple and Carrot Loaf earlier and as I said earlier I did not wanted to make sweet, I was thinking of other options.


Instant Green Apple Pickle

I have seen a few ideas earlier on making a pickle with apple and hence thought of giving this a go. I have simply used Ready pickle masala and mustard oil as a preservative. One can enjoy the pickle almost after 1-2 hours, but it is best to wait for a day or two, for the apple slices to soak in the masala and the oil.

Storing

Store this in the refrigerator in an air tight container for longer shelf life. If you can consume it in a 3-4 days it would be good on the shelf. But anything more than that, it is best to be refrigerated.
