An Article on Pickles
Pickling is a process, not a particular type of plant. You can pickle that which we usually identify as a pickle, a cucumber, (which is a fruit). Pickled cucumber is a cucumber that has been pickled in a brine, vinegar, or other solution and left to ferment for a period of time, by either immersing the cucumbers in an acidic solution or through souring by Lacto-fermentation. Lacto-fermentation is what makes cabbage sauerkraut.
Things that have been pickled include vegetables, (three bean salad, okra), fruit, (spiced peaches, crabapples), meat, hard-boiled eggs, walnuts, and things we would not normally eat, (watermelon rind pickles).
Pickles can be sweet, (sweet pickle relish, spiced apple rings), sour, (dill pickles), savory, (kimchi), and even be made to drink, (milk, water, or coconut milk kefir; kombucha tea).
Fermented foods are good for your digestion, help support your gut flora/bacteria, and help preserve foods that would otherwise spoil.
And they taste good.
