Amlas are an Indian super food and are greatly valued in traditional medicine for their vitamin C content, their ability to strengthen the immune system and keep respiratory ailments at bay.
They are, currently, in season, and this Honey-Amla Preserve is a good way to trap their virtues in a jar for the rest of the year.
Paired with wild forest honey and fragrant saffron, this no-cook preserve is as much an artisanal treat as it is medicine.
- 6-8 Amlas, cut along their sections and the seed discarded
- ½ cup Wild Forest Honey
- 8-10 strands of saffron
1. Place the chopped Amlas in a clean and dry glass jar. They should fill only half the jar.
2. Sprinkle the saffron strands on top.
3. Top with the honey, making sure you leave about 2 inches of space empty on top. The Amlas will begin to water as they stay in the jar, so this empty space will get filled up.
4. Screw the lid on and leave in a cool and dark spot. The Amlas will soften in a few days, after which you can eat them as a tonic or use in recipes.
