"First submitted to the web by Shadows on March 25, 2007 Prep Time: 1 hrs Total Time: 241 hrs Servings: 12 A lot of trouble to make, but well worth while. Old time cooks called these and stuffed fruits "mangoes". They were favorites in English-American homes because the flavor is superb with baked ham, game, roast pork, and with baked beans. Serve whole as a salad or slice and use as garnish. SOURCE : OLD TIME PICLING AND SPICING RECIPES . 18TH CENTURY . The passive cooking time includes the 10 day pickling time."
