Pumpkin Achar is an exotic Indian inspired pickle blend that presents a symphony of flavours to the palate. Its primary ingredient, pumpkin, lends a sweet and earthy undertone, which is beautifully elevated and pickled by the tangy apple cider vinegar. A hint of raw sugar adds a hint of caramelised sweetness that complements the pumpkin's natural flavour. Fresh fennel and fennel seeds introduce a mild liquorice undertone, and when combined with the zesty notes of lime zest, it adds an unexpected yet delightful twist.

The warmth of fresh ginger, chilli, and peppercorns dance together, creating a gentle heat that is perfectly balanced by the aromatic garlic and turmeric's golden notes. Mustard powder and seeds provide a slight bitterness and pungency, which adds depth and complexity. With each bite, you'll uncover layers of flavours that meld together harmoniously, making it an irresistible addition to a variety of dishes.

Potential Uses:

  1. Accompaniment for Meals: Serve it alongside roasted meats or grilled vegetables. It's particularly wonderful with dishes that could use a splash of brightness, flavour and spice.

  2. Sandwich Spread: Add a spoonful to sandwiches or wraps for an unexpected punch of flavour. It pairs exceptionally well with cheeses, cold cuts, and even vegetarian sandwiches.

  3. Salad Dressing Base: Mix with a bit of olive oil and perhaps a squeeze of fresh lime juice to create a vibrant dressing for salads.

  4. Marinade: Use as a marinade for chicken, fish, or tofu. The vinegar and spices will tenderise and infuse the protein with a burst of flavors.

  5. Serve: with naan bread or Indian inspired dishes as a side condiment.

  6. Stir-fry: Add a dollop into stir-fried vegetables or noodles for an added layer of flavour and a hint of heat.

  7. Gourmet Pizza Topping: Spread a thin layer on your pizza base before adding other toppings for a spicy and tangy twist.

Given the vinegar and salt content, this achar pickle will have a decent shelf life. However, it's always best to refrigerate after opening and consume within the recommended 14 month period for optimum flavour and freshness. This Product is also Gluten Free and Vegan friendly.
