Pickles are foods that have been submerged in a brine or vinegar solution for an extended period, allowing for preservation and imparting a characteristic flavor. Common in many cultures, pickles include cucumbers, carrots, cauliflower, jalapeños, among others.

What are artisanal pickles and how are they made?

Pickling is an ancient technique. According to the Royal Spanish Academy of Language, it is ''to make certain fruits or vegetables take the flavor of vinegar and preserve for a long time by keeping them in this liquid.'' It originated as a way to preserve food, since there was no refrigeration available at the time.

Basically, it is done this way:

  1.        First, choose the food you want to preserve. It needs to be chopped to ensure that the acid can touch most of the food and be fully effective.
  2.        In some cases, the food needs to be partially cooked, especially vegetables and meat. In any case, it needs to be filled with an acid like vinegar, whose properties prevent bacteria from entering.
  3.        Then the container is boiled, and the only thing left is to seal it.

Industrially, the process is similar, but each company has its own tricks. Virtually any fruit or vegetable can be pickled.

Benefits of consuming pickles

Pickles are not only delicious but also offer several health benefits:

  • Probiotics: Fermented pickles are an excellent source of probiotics, which promote optimal digestive health.
  • Low in calories: Ideal for those looking to maintain a low-calorie diet without sacrificing flavor.
  • Rich in antioxidants: Pickles contain antioxidants that can help combat free radicals in the body.

Pickle Variants

As mentioned above, virtually any fruit or vegetable can be pickled. Here are some variants:

  •          Olives, of many varieties
  •          Vegetables like ginger, lotus root, pickles, or onions. Additionally, there are asparagus and radishes.
  •          Capers of all kinds. All are in oil.
  •          Fruits like mango. We have also seen watermelon and lemon.
  •          Peppers, chilies, and jalapeños.
  •          Beef, pork, and even ham.
  •          Fish of all kinds.
  •          Whole eggs
  •          Okra

Do pickles make you gain weight?

No. Pickles are well-preserved vegetables, so the caloric index is practically nil. Additionally, vinegar is commonly used, a condiment that does not add fats to your diet.

The only thing to watch out for is sodium, as salt is added to make the food last longer.

How to make homemade pickles

Making pickles at home is simple and rewarding. Here is a basic guide:

  1. Select your vegetables: Cucumbers, carrots, and radishes are popular choices.
  2. Prepare the brine: Mix water, vinegar, salt, and your favorite spices.
  3. Pack the jars: Place the vegetables in sterilized jars and cover with the brine.
  4. Wait and enjoy: Let the jars sit in a cool place for at least a week before consuming.

How long do homemade pickles last?

Homemade pickles can last for several months if stored in a cool, dark place. Once opened, it's best to keep them refrigerated and consume them within a few weeks.
