When I read this recipe...I was like " wow,,,this is healthy and I must make this " Pickle with lemon juice...mind this this perfect for me. So I asked WB to take me to Jusco and I got myself a small chunk of organic pumpkin to make this yummilicious pickle. And to add flavor to this pickle...added some asam boi and chilli to it. This is truly addictive....refreshing, crunchy and slight spicy hot after taste. A wonderful and healthy pickle that will have you craving for more. Eating pumpkin raw is my first time. This is better than the pickle green papaya ...of course, this is my personal preference :)Try this pickle..you will agree with me. The pumpkin should not be over ripe.
