My anxious mind asked – with no prior experience to bank on, a 9-to-6 job and other pressing domestic matters, will I be able to keep up with the discipline of pickle-making?
I did – and a week later, have this delicious green chili pickle recipe to share with you. Detailed step-by-step pictures included.
