History of Pickling

The English word 'pickle' derives from the Middle English pikel, first recorded around 1400 and meaning 'a spicy sauce or gravy served with meat or fowl'. This is different to, but obviously related to the Middle Dutch source, pekel, meaning a solution, such as spiced brine, for preserving and flavouring food.

The earliest known examples of pickling are cucumbers, that are known to have been pickled some time around 2030 BC in Mesopotami, when inhabitants from northern India brought cucumber seeds to the Tigris valley. In Europe in the 16th century, there was a large increase in food preservation stemming from the arrival of new foods in Europe. Today, pickling is still performed by millions of people, and enjoyed by nearly everyone in the world.

Notable pickle-lovers from history include: Emperors Julius Caesar and Tiberius, King John and Queen Elizabeth I of England, Samuel Pepys, Amerigo Vespucci, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Napoleon Bonaparte. Today, with a little help, we can carry on the great tradition of pickling, and pickle just about anything our heart desires.
