Mother's pickles, Achar
Thinking of the Achar my mum used to make. Every year, Mum would get us help her julienne lots of cucumber, carrots, to make this pickle.
I became a warm fuzzy friend on impulse, We used to buy in Singapore this achar, Big daughter says buy it for 2nd daughter as Chinese New Year. Went to my regular Asian Grocery store, couldn't find it, asked the Cambodian girl, and we found it. She asked me what it was, and I pointed the cucumber, carrots etc. At the check out,another Cambodian girl asked. After paying for 3, I gave her one to share with the other girls. She didn't want to take, I said it is Chinese New Year.
