I've lived in the South all my life (SC) and I have never heard of a pickled apple in the manner you described. The only pickled apples I am familiar with are the spiced apples cut in wheels and pickled (spiced) in the red sauce. They are still sweet !

We do crabapples here in a sweet pickle solution. Great with game and coldmeat dishes.

Pennsylvania Dutch country is great for pickled everything (leave out the pigs feet here). Pickled watermelon rind is great.

I too have lived in the South my entire life ( 53 years ) and have never heard of that kind of pickled apple. We always have the spiced apple rings at Christmas. My mom makes a filling of cream cheese, brown sugar and chopped nuts and puts in the center of the apple rings, but I have never heard of regular pickled apples

I've seen them and don't want to try them. Same for pickled lamb tongue.

Welcome to Roadfood, tharlan . Was it a wedge or a whole apple? Sweet or sour? Spicy? I've never seen any except for those red spiced crabapples that come in a jar.

Now, I have had pickled peaches plenty of times. My mother used to pickle them every summer. But, I've never had pickled apples. The texture of an apple and a peach is so different, I don't know how they would be

My Piedmont North Carolina and Virginia country relatives that made their own saurkraut would put whole apples in with the cabbage and salt to ferment and coarse chop everything together to fry with pork. My guess is that this came down with German settlers from Pennsylvania in the 1700s.

Pickled Apples

Cover the bottom of glass pot (traditionally, wood barrels are used) with black currant leaves. Put 1 level of apples, and then cover this with leaves. Put all apples with leaves into the pot by analogy. Pour apples with pickle (level of pickle must exceed level of apples). Put above wood circle (with diameter like the pot approximately). Put some load (about 3lb (1,5 kg) - bottle with water, etc.) above. Pour some pickle into apples if necessary. Keep for 30-40 days until ready.

Ingredients:
• Green apples;
• black currant or cherry leaves;

Ingredients for pickle:
• 20 cups (5 liters) water;
• 0,5lb (200g) sugar (or 0,7lb (300g) honey);
• 1,5 Tbsp salt
Boil all ingredients together, and then cool.
