National Pickle Day

Today is National Pickle Day and it seems this ancient food is more popular than ever.  Last month I visited a New York City Pickle Day on the Lower East Side and it was so crowded with such long lines I couldn’t get close to the actual pickles.  There are a number of vegetables that can be pickled (including peppers by the peck apparently).  Cucumbers are the most popular here in the states.  What are your favorites?  Dill? Bread and Butter? Gherkins?  Enjoy some today to celebrate this puckering national day!
