Pickled Fruits Feast

Two big bottles of pickled fruits for us, that came all the way from Pasar Payang, Terengganu courtesy of my sis-in-law. Thanks dearie.

We actually would love to get our hands on some pickled salak (snake fruit), but there were no stock of it when she was there. Aaahhhh... pity. I wrote about the salak fruit last year, do check it out here.

Although we didn't get our favourite pickled salak fruit, my sis-in-law brought back a bottle of pickled mangoes and kelubi (swamp fruit); which is extremely sour and extremely addictive.

We had some each night but for me, I can only take a piece at a time. I sure don't want my gastric to act up on me, after taking all these acidic treat far too much!

  4. Aah too bad they didn't have the stock, salak is certainly the best!

    I can still enjoy pickled mangoes, but kelubi is way too sour for me...

  6. @Ayie,
    I love mangoes both pickled and fresh. Ripe and unripe. Ooooo yummy. I wish I have a mango tree just like at my hometown so I can indulge. :)

    Check out the link for snake fruit, Ayie. It is nice. A bit sweet & sourish if eaten fresh.

    And yeah, I need to be careful of my intake. I'm limiting two pickled fruits per day, max.

  7. @Evan's Mom,
    yeah, too bad. Otherwise, we'll have a good time eating pickled salak. I love them! :)

    I don't eat kelubi all that much either. Too sour for me too! :) But hubby and son loves them.

  9. I saw it Lina, it looks like same skin as lychee but the inside looks different

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Ayie,
    The skin is much harder than lychee. Lychee are soft, juicy and sweet. Salak fruit (or snake fruit) is hard and crunchy.
    If you come to Malaysia, we'll go and find some so that you can try. Deal?

  14. @bengbeng,
    it's a type of swamp (marsh) fruit. It is closely related to Salak (Snake) fruit, as they are both non-rattan palm plants. It is a sour fruit and heavenly to eat when pickled. :)

  17. Oh it's sour! yeah try not to eat it too many 'coz its coloring may not good to the body. But once in a while sure ok, hehehe :-)

  18. @QuaChee,
    You eat jeruk on CNY?

    @Bengbeng,
    the only way to solve this is - go to yoour nearby pasar malam and look for some at the tidbits stall. :D

    @Dora,
    Definitely. The coloring that made your fingers all turn yellow. But funny, that didn't deter us to eat these, right?

    ReplyDelete
  21. @bengbeng,
    let us know if you find them. :)

    @wenn,
    My parents used to make them but I don't know how to. Do you know how to make pickled fruits?

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Ayie,
    You can't stand durian. Such a pity! :D

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  24. @levian,

  26. I tasted the salak fruit before in PJ Hilton. Haha! My first taste of this fruit is in a dinner buffet, can you believe that!

    Need some getting used - this snake fruit!

    ReplyDelete
  27. @foong,
    Eat kuaci on CNY, that one I know lah. Hihihi

    Wah, so class la you. Eat jeruk at hotel. If I ever manage to get my hands on bottles of salak fruit, you can get some from me. :D

    Actually, you went to Kenyir that time, I should have "tumpang" you buy something from Terengganu. LOL
    You went to KT or not after your trip there?

  30. nope, I can't. my smell is quite sensitive. I tried many times...even the pastllas or candies can make me feel like throwing up. But jackfruit is something I cannot resist!

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Ayie,
    Wow! That's sensitive. @_@
    I love jackfruit but eating them sometimes gives me gas. But like you, I can't resist. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I like it fresh, cooked as dessert (in sugar) and cooked as unripe with coconut milk and a bit spicy! oh now I want it!
