Pickling means increasing the acidity of a product so that food poisoning organisms, such as Clostridium botulinum, do not grow and produce toxin. This may be done through a fermentation process and/or by the direct addition of an acid ingredient, such as vinegar or lemon juice. With either method, follow a reliable recipe to ensure proper acidification. Once the produce has been properly acidified, take steps to prevent spoilage from microorganisms that thrive in an acid environment and to inactivate enzymes that may affect flavor, color and texture. Refrigeration is an acceptable short-term (up to six months) storage method for fully fermented products such as sauerkraut and long-brined dills. Canning is a better way to store fully fermented pickles and sauerkraut and is the only recommended procedure for fresh-pack pickle products. Processing times and procedures vary according to food acidity and the size of food pieces.

When making pickles, a cucumber is placed in a strong salt solution to start a process called plasmolysis. Since the outside water concentration is lower than inside the cells of the cucumber due to the hypertonic solution, the cell walls' cytoplasms pulls away making the cells shrink. This makes the cucumber shrink into a pickle.

Pickles are produced by placing cucumbers in salt solutions. In it, the water in the cucumber undergoes osmosis in an attempt to balance the salt concentration between itself and the salt water outside of it.

Cucumbers are often soaked in salt water to remove some of the naturally high water content. Cucumbers can be made into pickles by fermenting or quick packed in a vinegar solution and processed in a boiling water bath and then they can be kept on the shelf for up to a year

The water in the cucumber vacates into the saline solution (salt solution) by way of osmosis and balance is reached thus the cucumber takes on the surrounding fluid making it a pickle.
