Yeah! Pickles are awesome. I've always know that pickles are generally cucumbers. If you ever want to try something fun make your own pickles, or try something different like pickled green beans, or pickled okra.

hi iamamommy! as far as i know, the term "pickle" can also refer to other vegetables or fruits that are suitable for "pickling", like onions, unripe mangoes, turnips, etc., the most common of which is the young cucumber because it has so many culinary uses (especially in relishing and dressing salads and sandwiches).
