*Recipe variation: For a cooked pickled relish, combine above ingredients with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer; cook for 15 minutes until most of the liquid is reduced and the mango and cucumber are tender. Place in glass jar and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


Get creative – add fresh tomato or red bell pepper to the mix!
