** A Guild of Fine Foods Great Taste Two Star Award Winner **
"This firm pickle is packed with finely chopped limes and curry leaves, and seeds. It has a heady aroma of lime and spices. On tasting, it is fresh and sharp but with just enough sweetness so it isn’t too acidic. The different levels of flavour from the spices develop on the tongue, ending in a gentle but lingering level of heat. This is surprisingly complex and really delicious. It would work with cheese and cold meats as well as with curries. It is a far cry from the more usual harsh lime pickle with big chunks of pickled lime" - JUDGES NOTES
This delicious pickle start life with limes that are fermented in salt for one week before being chopped and added to an amazing array of herbs and spices including dried curry leaves and green finger chillis directly from India.
If you love a curry this is an essential pickle. Don't just stop there though, this works beautifully on strong cheddars too.
Store in a cool dry place, once opened keep refrigerated and consume within 4 weeks.
