Have you pickled anything?

I've just recently found a recipe for pickled beets. Antipastos have pickled vegetables which is just cut up vegetables in a vinegar or brine. Thinking of trying this pickling thing. I have even seen pickled eggs, but don't know about that.

  • I've made pickled beets, pickled hot pepper rings, bread & butter pickles, dill pickles, sweet pickles, dill and sweet pickle relish, and pickled green beans. I'd love to try making watermelon rind pickles!

  • Nope, not unless you consider pickling pineapple in tequila. In that case yes I have, but nothing with a brine or vinegar mix.

  • MMMM! You just gave me the idea to make deviled eggs.

    Never pickled anything though I do love pickled okra.

  • My sister makes pickles every year. She says it is super easy. She add onions and whole cloves of garlic, and that is what her kids go for first, the onions and garlic. :O

  • I have never canned/pickled anything, but I love fresh cucumbers and onions soaked in a vinegar, water, salt and sugar mix. It is yummy.
