When you think of pickle recipes you probably think immediately of cucumber pickles. However, pickling is not just for cucumbers!
Pickling, simply put, is the preservation of food (actually many different foods) in an acid, often vinegar. The acidic environment prevents bacterial growth and thus makes the food safe to eat. Spices and or sweeteners are added for flavor. When canning pickles you will process them in a water bath canner.
One thing I want to emphasize to new picklers. It is not recommended that you substitute a different vegetable for any pickling recipe. They all have differences, For example, ph levels and food textures are different. Each vegetable has its own pickling recipe... don't make substitutions unless it is specifically mentioned for that recipe.
