Does the term "pickle" in America typically refer to pickled gerkins or anything pickled?
Here in the UK if you ask for pickle you would get something like this.
is made from a variety of diced vegetables, including swede, carrots, onions, cauliflower and gherkins pickled in a sauce made from vinegar, tomato,
apple and dates with spices such as mustard, coriander, garlic, cinnamon, pepper, cloves, nutmeg and cayenne pepper with sugar.
As in our reveared cheese and pickle sandwich.
Going back to pickled gerkins Both myself and mrsnonspecfic are big fans, we preffer the smaller sweet crunchy ones and a jar never lasts long.
Also if you want to make an interesting vinagrette for salads then the pickle juice mixed with the oil from a jar of roasted peppers or sundried
tomatoes with a few finley diced pickles, some shallot and minced capers is pretty awsome and saves wasting the juice if your sensible enough not to
