Spanish pickle

Spanish pickle is not something I had heard of before. It’s one of the odder recipes in the book. For one thing I have no idea what “hot green mangoes” are, so I will assume I’ve misread that. For another it calls for a “small measure of Beans” and one hundred small pickles. I think someone definitely has to make this, and I am issuing an official call for volunteers.
