its just a classic relish, simply something whipped together on a whim.. No exciting stories of discovery here. I usually just use mangoes in this recipe, but there was a lone meyer lemon sitting on my counter, its gorgeous orange skin a beckoning.. I didn't have the heart to let its lustre fade away and shrivel just because it wouldn't fit into the jar with its preserved lemon brethren...
Combine the Mayer lemon, mango salt, cayenne & turmeric in a ceramic bowl.
Heat the oil until it 'shimmers' add the mustard seeds and allow to sputter. Pour the hot oil with the mustard over the mango & lemon mix. Stir to combine. Allow to rest for about an hour for the flavors to integrate.
