Recipes using pickle
The pickling process differs from recipe to recipe, but the concept remains the same. Immersing vegetables, fruit, meat, fish or eggs in salt or acid (most commonly vinegar) will preserve the food. Acid stops micro-organisms from growing, which stops the food from going off. Adding spices and flavourings, such as mustard, peppercorns, cloves and coriander seeds, brings depth and flavour to pickle recipes.
