Home-made pickles make a delicious accompaniment to your pies, salads and curries. Making your own pickle is a great way of using up fresh produce and a simple way of livening up your meals with complimentary flavours.
For those seeking an Indian twist, lime pickle is a favourite to eat with curries and poppadoms and tastes fantastic with pie. A simple lime pickle recipe can be made combining fresh lime wedges with salt, vinegar, oil and Indian spices such as fenugreek and mustard seeds.
Mango pickle is another classic Indian pickle, usually eaten as a side dish for curries and starters. You can combine vegetables such as carrot and cauliflower with your pickles to add bulk and texture. A traditional English pickle can be made using any of your favourite vegetables and will create the perfect marriage of flavours with a pork pie and mustard for a tasty and traditional British lunch.
