Special Papaya Pickles or Achara

Achara ala Bechay :)

Every time I see fresh green papayas at the Asian Store in Reno which is very seldom, I'd always buy one or two. The other time I was there I got lucky so I bought two big ones for this recipe. 

I made 3 jars and gave them away thinking that I could buy fresh ones again during my Citizenship interview which I really did but I was too busy in my new home so the papayas just turned soft and bad in the corner of my kitchen. Sigh.

Anyway, this recipe is special because of its ingredients. I put ampalaya, string beans, of course carrots, among others. Pineapple is one of the ingredients too but I forgot to put some this time.

The recipe is here which has been  posted  already to my other blog 2 years ago.

Thanks for visiting!
