Pickles, sweet

What is pickles, sweet? About the ingredient pickles, sweet. Including 24 recipes with pickles, sweet, and where to find it.


A gherkin is not only a pickle of a certain size but also a particular species of cucumber: the West Indian or Burr Gherkin (Cucumis anguria), which produces a somewhat smaller fruit than the garden cucumber (Cucumis sativus).

Standard pickles are made from the Burr Gherkin, but the term gherkin has become loosely used as any small cucumber pickled in a vinegar brine, regardless of the variety of cucumber used.

Cornichons are tart French pickles made from gherkins pickled with vinegar and tarragon. They traditionally accompany pâtés.


Sweet pickled cucumbers, including bread-and-butter pickles, are higher in calories due to their sugar content; one large gherkin may contain 25-40 calories. However, sweet pickled cucumbers also tend to contain significantly less sodium than sour pickles.
