Ingredients

How to make it

  • Boil together pandan leaves, sugar, vinegar, water and salt till sugar and salt are completely dissolved. Turn off heat and cool liquid completely.
  • Divide aloe cubes and chilies evenly between 2 (approx 400ml capacity) clean dry glass jars with glass or plastic lids. Remove pandan leaves from cool liquid and fill jars to the top with it.
  • Screw caps on securely and refrigerate for 3 days before using.
  • Keeps for 1 month, refrigerated. Snack on the aloe cubes if you're trying to lose weight - they really stop your appetite in it's tracks.

    Hey Catbot! I don't see a problem with N American aloe. Most cacti probably taste the same - bland lol Just be sure it's an edible variety as I'm not sure that ALL cacti or for that matter ALL aloe varieties are edible. Happy pickling!

    Hee hee... I just had to see it for myself. Do you think I could substitute the aloe that is native to North America? I know where I can get some of that easily. Anyway, it looks interesting, so I've bookmarked it. Have yourself a very happy Easter, lady!
