Folks have been making and eating pickled foods for centuries. Pickling food was once done out of necessity as modern refrigeration and preservatives were not in existence. There was a need to preservefoods grown on the farm through the non-growing seasons. This helped supplement the foods that were hunted and gathered from the wilderness.
Some of us can remember our parents filling the pantry and cold storage room in the basement with all manner of pickled vegetables, pickled meats and pickled eggs. The younger generations might not have had the pleasurable experience of taste testing mom's pickled asparagus, pickled green beans or pickled pork hocks.
The health benefits of pickled meats such as pickled pork hocks, pickled sausage or pickled turkey gizzard, pickled vegetables, and pickled eggs are many. These pickled foods are generally low in fat, low in carbohydrates, high in fiber and chock full of vitamins and minerals. It is generally believed that pickled foods contributed to a more balanced diet and better health. Eating pickled foods in a way brings us back to basics, forget about the great taste!
