Where did the word pickle come from?
In Food Canning
English got the word pickle from Middle Low German pekel, which means "sharp in taste". Words like pike and picket also derive from the same source as pickle. That source, an Indo-European root, is (s)peik- "sharp point". The metaphorical sharpness in pickles is, of course, their vinegary taste. The word entered English in the 14th century. And their Freakin delicious!!! =)

Kosher foods are those that do not violate Jewish dietary law. The law is complicated, and not all authorities agree on exactly what is kosher and what isn't. A kosher food will generally have on it somewhere a trademarked symbol belonging to a rabbinical supervising organization. This means the pro…duct has been investigated by someone belonging to that organization who is very familiar with Jewish dietary law, and has found that not only the ingredients but the process used does not violate any of the principles of that law as interpreted by that particular organization. Some organizations are stricter than others, but most of them make their guidelines for specific foods available so people know exactly what a kosher certification from that organization really means. The question might arise: what might there be in a dill pickle that could possibly violate the dietary law to make some dills "Kosher Dills" and others just "Dill pickles"? The answer is that so-called "Kosher Dills" are not necessarily actually kosher in the sense of being made under rabbinical supervision, but that they're the traditional style (with lots of garlic and dill) that would typically be served in a New York kosher deli. The label usually actually reads "Kosher style Dill" with the word style written very small. __________ There is no dispute as to what is or isn't kosher. The only potential issue is that some people follow more strict standards. For example, cow milk in North America is considered kosher, however, some people will only drink milk that is 'chalav yisrael'. Chalav yisrael is a certification given to milk where the whole process of production is supervised by a 'mashgiach' (an orthodox observant Jew who is an expert on the laws of kashrut). A mashgiach can be a rabbi but that is not required. One of the only ingredients that could render a pickle not kosher is the type of vinegar used if a vinegar brine is used. ( Full Answer )
Pickle commonly refers to a cucumber that has fermented in brine or vinegar for a period of time. (Many foods are able to be pickled, but cucumber is the most common use of the word Pickle) The process itself is called "Pickling" and has roots in a German word pÃ¶kel, which was a type of sauce n…ormally served with meat or fowl. The word Pickle comes from the Dutch word Pekel which means brine. Pickling is a form of food preservation, much like sauce, perserves, and smoked and salted meats. It is not known who first coined the phrase or where the process specifically originates, but the earliest use of "cucumber preserved in pickle" is believed to come from 1440 A.D. in central European countries (the Germans, Dutch, and French.)

Shakespeare does not use those exact words, but here are some similar uses. Thou shalt be whipp'd with wire, and stew'd in brine, Smarting in lingering pickle. (Antony and Cleopatra, II, 5) How camest thou in this pickle? (The Tempest, V, 1) I have been in such a pickle since I saw you last …that, I fear me, will never out of my bones (The Tempest, V, 1) . In the quotation from Antony and Cleopatra, the "pickle" is the same as "brine", salty water which aids preservation of vegetables etc. In the quotations from The Tempest, the idea is that Trinculo is "pickled", which is to say, drunk. The same implication is given in Twelfth Night, when Sir Toby says "A plague o' these pickled herring." The idea is that it is Sir Toby and not the herring that is pickled. Shakespeare does not use the phrase in the sense of being in trouble or a tricky situation. ( Full Answer )
A very general definition for "pickle", is to preserve a food using a solution of water that contains salt or vinegar or both. Additional seasoning is common, but not necessary. By this very broad definition, you can pickle almost any food. Whether it will taste good after pickling, is another qu…estion entirely (for example, Lutefisk). Meats are usually pickled with salt only and not vinegar, while vegetables & fruit have vinegar as a base. ( Full Answer )
