National Pickle Day

National Pickle Day

Everyone, it’s National Pickle Day! Did you forget? You might think you are in a pickle. But don’t worry. You still have time to enjoy some pickles.

These fermented morsels can be enjoyed in any combination of brine or vinegar.

They don’t have much nutritional value, aside from their moderate vitamin K and high sodium content. Also, pickles don’t often go well with healthy meals. You might even drink the juice after you finish eating the pickles from the jar. Nutritionists, take note!

If you are still hungry after you finish, you can have a Koolickle or 2 for dessert. You may be wondering what Koolickles are. Koolickles can be described as pickles that have been marinated in brine,…Koolaid, and then fried. This creates a sweet but tangy snack that children love but adults shudder at the use of premade ingredients. We might just stick with pickles.

Pickles derive their name from the Dutch word “brine” and became a popular food around 4,000 years ago. Cucumbers had never been imported from India before that time. Cleopatra, among others, is believed to have attributed her youth and looks to pickles. Pickles are a staple of pensioners’ diets in certain parts of the globe, and pregnant women often crave them along with ice-cream to satisfy their strange pregnancy-related food cravings.

It’s the best way to celebrate this holiday, and I think you will all agree that it is to eat as many pickles possible. Pickles can be eaten straight from the jar. However, if you want to try something new, you might make traditional Polish pickle soup. This will warm you up on a cold November day. You didn’t know there was anything like it. You don’t have to worry about it, just learn and enjoy the wonderfulness of salty and sour pickle soup.

Ingredients: (serves 6-8)

Combine the stock, shredded pickles, pickle liquid, and chopped potatoes in a large saucepan. Bring the mixture back to boil, then reduce heat and cover. Cover the pot and cook on low heat for about 10 minutes. Combine the flour, milk and water in a small bowl. Then add the broth to it. Bring the mixture to boil, then reduce heat. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Serve with sour cream or freshly chopped dill.
