JAMUN PICKLE (JAMBUL, BLACK BERRY)


Pickles are made with varieties of vegetables, fruits.  Some variety has to be consumed soon and some can be stored for years together.

Pickle is a part of any Indian dish whether it is a feast or with paratha, upma, rice varieties etc.  I love pickles and always try my hand with varieties of vegetables and fruits.  Jamun, Jambul, black berry, it is known as is available from May, June.  It is good for diabetic people.  the seeds are dried,powdered and consumed for controlling diabetic.
