In the South, we like our pickles fresh out the bag off a convenience store shelf, fried in quarter-sized circles and dipped in ranch, or in a spear on the side of our favorite po-boy. Pickles have been around for over 4,000 years, originating when ancient civilizations used salty brine to preserve food. Made to last, pickles have a strong history, from being a favorite of Queen Cleopatra in Egypt to traveling with famous explorers to the Americas. Now Americans eat more than 2 million pounds of pickles a year.
