- 600 gm peeled aloe vera flesh, cut into large cubes, soak 10 minutes in water to remove slime, then drain well shopping list
- 4 large fresh mottled chilies, slit and deseeded, leave whole shopping list
- 6 pandan leaves, cut into short lengths (if unavailable omit) shopping list
- 1 and 3/4 of a cup sugar shopping list
- 1 and 1/2 of a cup vinegar shopping list
- 1 and 1/2 of a cup water shopping list
- 1/2 of a cup salt (1/4 of a cup for a sweeter pickle) shopping list
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.
