Lime Pickle…Part 2

Salted limes

Well, I managed to rinse the salt off this little lot of limes without losing too much flavour (boy was it salty)

In the pan they went with some other stuff…

(Here’s where I had to go back to the shops for some spices as my supply had mysteriously disappeared)

Left it all to cook down…

Sterilised the jars…

and when it was all sticky…

Lime Pickle bottled


Its quite bitter, as expected and of course, it’s not strictly a lime pickle. I’m going to let it stand for a couple of weeks see if the sweetness that I wanted comes out a bit more and I might play around with the spices a bit more next time but all in all, not bad for a first try.

Jam on!
