Total time 45 mins
Yield Makes: 1 1/4 cups
Mary Karlin, author of Mastering Fermentation, turns the fruit she's strained from her Pineapple Ginger Mint Shrub--a sweet-tart infusion of vinegar and fruit--into an exciting salsa that's especially good over seared pork chops.


  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons diced, seeded jalapeño chile
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks drained from Pineapple Ginger Mint Shrub
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons roughly torn fresh mint leaves

How to Make It

  1. In a medium bowl, combine honey and lime juice. Gently stir in remaining ingredients except for mint. Cover and let sit at room temperature 20 minutes. Adjust salt to taste. Just before serving, stir in mint.

  2. Make ahead: Up to 2 weeks, chilled.
