Pickles - A Little History and a Few Fun Facts
The pickle is the best food on earth. It goes well with just about anything from a hamburger, as a side, in a salad or my go-to afternoon snack. Pickles are also very low in calorie—for the average size pickle, it is only around 8 calories. And some snack-size pickles are 5 calories.
When was the first pickle made?
Ever wonder about the history of a pickle? No? Well here it is. The earliest known examples are cucumbers that are known to have been pickled sometime around 2030 BC in Mesopotamia, when inhabitants from northern India brought cucumber seeds to the Tigris valley. Romans pickled their pickles in vinegar, oil, brine and sometimes even honey.
What is a pickle?
