I simply love winter and winter produce! The season gifts us with so many amazing stuffs that we can hog over. Not just the climate is pleasant, cold and cozy but also there is festivity all around. We get a huge variety of fruits and vegetables this season, which includes some amazing produces like Fenugreek, Spinach, Radish, Carrot, Turnips etc etc. A perfect season when your digestion just behaves good and your diet and appetite increases to double. Winters are to eat and make merry.
I have grown up seeing my mother pickling vegetables and fruits as well. The most common ones are the mango and lemon pickle that is often done during the summers. Long long procedures of pickling stuffs such that they are preserved safely for a year at least till the next season arrives is actually a pain taking process and needs real skilled hands. I am poor in making pickles but i love eating them hence it becomes tough for me to balance both. This is why mostly pickles are sponsored by my mom but hold on i am not that bad also…lol.
Every winter I make this amazingly delicious and tangy pickle with Turnips and Carrots which is not just easy but is made withing few minutes. The one draw back it has that it cannot be stored for a longer period. As it contains water and no preservatives, this instant pickle needs to consumed as soon as possible. But still if you want to enjoy it for 4-5 more days then better stock it in a jar and refrigerate it for a better shelf life.
So next time if you have carrots and turnips at home and thinking of impressing your guests with some amazing winter special pickle then try out this recipe and gather all the praise (hehe).
