How to Make Hawaiian Style Pickled Mango


  • 1Peel mango and slice into thick strips, approx. 1/4-1/2 inch. Place peeled and sliced mango in a 1 gallon container with lid and tightly pack it in to displace as much volume in the jar as possible.
    ***Be very careful when removing mango from the very hard pit in the center. (Discard the pit, it is not edible)
  • 2In a stockpot, mix together the sugar, water, Japanese vinegar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue to boil until you achieve a syrup consistency.
  • 3Cool the syrup.
    (optional) Add the red food coloring, a few drops at a time until your syrup is a nice red color.
    Pour syrup into container with mango slices, place in the refrigerator for a minimum on 3 days before consuming this delicious treat.
