What a Pickle isn't

I'm ashamed to say that I did not know that pickle was not a fruit, so to speak. I think somehow I assumed there was such a think as a pickle plant, I guess. In course of conversation with my wife, the truth became clear to me, a pickle is pickled cucumber.

I am now wiser than I was yesterday. Eating pickles will never be the same again.

A Pickle is any item salted and pickled in vinegar. It isn't just a dill (cucumber) there are a million items pickled, mushrooms, onions, cabage, peppers, chilies, ....I could carry on for hours. Each of these items should be available at your local supermarket.

I knew about pickling stuff, but fuzzy brain here never quite put two and two together.
