Pickling is the process of preparing food by soaking and storing it in a brine containing salt or acid (usually vinegar), or both, a process which can preserve otherwise perishable foods for months. Although the process was originally used to preserve foods, pickling is frequently done because people en-joy the resulting flavor. (Wikipedia)
