The Other Pickle

When the word pickle is mentioned, most often we think of the cucumber in its myriad pickled variations. But nearly every food can be pickled, and indeed may have been at one time or another. I love Chinese pickled vegetables (mustard green, radish, turnip, etc.) in soups, stir-fries, or just plain, like kim chee.

What are your favorite pickled foods? Any good, unusual recipes? Any veryBAD experiences?

    Pickled garlic cloves. Pickled okra is what I most often eat, though.

    My grandmother's lime pickles; next, any home-made lime pickles. Then Fanning's (?) Bread and Butter Pickles.

    As a true Baltimoreon I have to admit to a love of the sour pickled onion. Not them little things called cocktail onions, but big pickled onions found in gallon jars at the deli counter.

    Speaking of the hotter the better, nothing beats a pickled habanero.

    I make my own bread & butter pickles as no one slices them as thin as I do. I also enjoy some of the medium examples of kim chee.

    Pickled cheese anyone? While most people don't know it, feta is actually a pickled cheese, being cured and stored in whey brine.

    (Not to mention that little bit of blue cheese stuffed into green olives.)

    Russian Cuisine utilizes many items pickled. This weekend in Brooklyn, I ate at a restaurant that served a platter of the usual suspects, cukes, cabbage, etc. But then had some things I never had before. Pickled red tomatoes, Apples, Grapes, Watermelon (fruit and rind), Pears.

    It was an interesting twist to the classic sweet vs. sour scenerio.

    I like vietnamese carrot and daikon pickles, japanese pickled cucumber, umeboshi (plums), korean radish and cabbage etc. kimchee. I had some great pickled eggplant and turnip on my shawarma the other day, too. And for something potent and different, how about chinese fermented tofu with chili

    Great cultural food that is not given enough time. Pelmini(little russian dumplings filled with veal or sweet cheese, served with sour cream or vineger)Fantastic cold salads using cucumber or eggplant, great soups made with fish. The list goes on and on.
    Ask your peers to take you out for some good soul food.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned beets, which I love. I also like pickled okra, green beans, onions, and saurkraut, which is basically pickled cabbage.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned pickled meats. Note that I do not list any preferences.

    There are so many pickled items in Pennsylvania Dutch cooking. Most common is pickled cabbage (or with the addition of green pepper, pepper cabbage), finely chopped or ground cabbage with a sugar and cider vinegar dressing. Celery seeds are usually added to it.

    Then there's pickled red beet eggs, pickled green beans, pickled cauliflower, chow-chow, and pickled peaches, to name a few.

    PICKLED RED(purple)BEET EGGS! I love those things although we just call them pickled eggs. I have a gallon glass jar just for making those. I could eat them with every meal. The only kind I'll eat are my own though. Those in conveinent stores scare me. Besides the fact that other people put their hands near the product, you never know how long that jar has been there I also prefer mine refrigerated.

    In the NYC area we are blessed to have so many ethnic choices. They have nicknamed the Coney Island and Brighton Beach area of Brooklyn "Little Oddessa" after the city in Kiev.

    However, though we get to taste some exotic foods from all over the world, NYC does not do the great regional american foods the justice they deserve.

    I envy those like yourself in the areas like Kentucky and the other states that have so many great dishes. Enjoy, and if you are ever in NY the Vodka is on me.

    OC--I am with you on this one! YUM! Though I do like the little coctail onions too. And gherkins. Not only do they taste good, but gherkin is such a fun word to say!

    I used to go to a watering hole down there called the Blue and Gold. They always had pickled things on the counter -- and at the bar when I was there.
