I had a sandwich made for me today containing pickled vegetables. It reinvigorated my long dormant love of this condiment.

Here, pickle lovers can come together and discuss the important things in life.

There will be prizes awarded for:

1. Best use of a pickle

2. Most strange/innovative combination of pickles with food

3. Best home recipe for pickles

I love the pickled garlic cloves that come with certain jars of olives. I hate my work for using the same container for the beet slices and the pickled eggs; why must they deny me the red, beety goodness??

Ewww, beetroot and eggs. I suggest you write a letter to HR.

DILL, poll closed.

Except maybe for hot pickles.

Sometimes dill, but sometimes it's gotta be sweet pickles! Bread & Butter chips I think they call 'em. One of my earliest memories and the only one of my paternal grandmother, besides her dog.

Japanese eggplant and daikon radish are pretty good. They have a bonito flavored and a spicy flavored kind that I like to eat. They have all kinds of pickles here, even cabbage and carrots. Tsukemono is what they call them.

We make our own dill pickles here too. We add a little more red pepper than most so they're a bit spicy. I used to come home from the gym and have a few, probably craving salt or something.

cucumbers, water, white vinegar, salt, black and red pepper, generous amount of garlic, mustard seed, dill...ah something else. cant remember, but that's the gist of it.

Different pickles for different jobs.

But Picallili deserves a mention:-


It's got to have cauliflower in it.

I prefer to have them deep fried and served with a side of ranch dipping sauce.
