No doubt, chicken pickle is great! It can be a treasure to any meal, especially when you’re in a hurry. While we may purchase huge quantities of chicken and store in our cupboards, it is important to make sure that the chicken pickle does not go rancid. Nothing can be sadder than seeing your jar of chicken pickle spoilt and smelling. To make sure that this does not happen, you need to make sure of a couple of things before you buy our chicken pickle.
How do I store it? How long will it last me?
To answer these questions, you need to first understand how chicken pickles are stored and what helps in preserving chicken pickles.
When it comes to chicken pickle, moisture is the enemy. It is the sole cause for any chicken pickle to go rancid or form any kind of mold. This is why liberal amounts of sea salt and oil are added into your chicken pickles.
The good amount of sea salt and a layer of oil floating on top of your pickle add a powerful moisture-block layer to your pickle. This oil layer prevents any form of moisture from getting in contact with your pickle.
Other ingredients like garlic and ginger in your pickle have natural preservatives that also help in the storage of your pickles for a very long time.
