Pickling food is an ancient way to preserve it for later use. It is thought that pickling of food began in ancient India, approximately 4000 years ago. Pickling was devised to preserve foods which were being taken on long journeys to prevent them spoiling.
Pickling various foods preserved them for longer periods, ensuring that out of season foods could still be eaten. These types of preserved foods were ideal for long sea voyages as they ensured the crew had ample food for the entire journey. The indians used mainly native cucumbers to pickle and the pratice eventually spread to Europe and the Americas.
When trade between contients was established, the pratice of pickling became popular to preserve new types of foods for later consumption. Although in the past, pickling was used primarially to preserve foods, in modern times, pickled food is enjoyed for it’s taste and crunchy texture.
