YES, you can use this year mangoes until the next season…wanna know how? Its simple…use them to make mango pickle or aam ka achar, as we call it in Urdu! Preparing pickles at home is a very old tradition in Pakistan. And even today, majority of the households (especially in the Punjab province) make pickle at home which is then stored in large jars and used throughout the year. It is also given as a gift to relatives and friends.

Even though the basic recipe for mango pickle remains the same, but every household has its own traditional recipe with a little variation that has been followed for centuries, and this is why each house’s pickle has its own special flavor.
