I have been making this Atsara or Atchara for several months now! What it is, it is basically a Filipino version of sauerkraut except that it is green papaya instead of cabbage. And it is pickled in white vinegar, sugar and veggies such as red peppers, carrots, ginger, garlic and sometimes raisins!
This is very easy to make, the hardest part is shredding the papaya. But if you use a food processor, it is a lot faster and easier!
Anyway, since making this the first time, I gave out a lot of samples to my friends to try out. Everybody loved it and urged me to make more to sell! So I have been making it for friends!
I am earning a little money from it, but I am more glad to know that I am able to help some of my friends that are missing this kind of food since it is not available anywhere. I am able to provide them this dish and among other Filipino foods and snacks that cannot be easily bought or obtained in any store when cravings strikes! Oh I know exactly how that feels! That is why I learned how to make these things!
