Are they vegetarian? I mean, is there anything used in the pickling process that would make them non veg*n?



Thanks

I've been helping my Grandma make homemade pickels for years, and all that is used(in her recipe) is: vinager, dill, garlic, and dried red pepper(whole). It depends on the recipe, but in all the recipes I've seen(sweet, dill, kosher dill), none invlove anything from an animal source. I'm sure there is some random recipe that involves some animal product, but a majority of the time, you'll be safe

I haven't heard anything about them not being vegetarian, or vegan for that matter

I'm sure theres some weird recipe out there that has some kind of meat flavoring in it, but I've never heard or seen or any non-veg*n pickles. You're safe.

There is a possibility that the sugar used to make the vinegar is bone char vinegar, but that's the only thing that I've come across.

Unless you're into Pickled Pigs Feet. My little old German Grandpa used to love them. I couldn't open the fridge door at their house - too traumatic!

Exactly!



I <3 homemade pickles. For years I refused to eat non-homemade pickles. Now I'll eat kosher dill store boughten, but I will not touch bread and butter pickles(what my gran calls her sweet pickles), if they aren't made by my gran hehe

Same here... the sweet ones are gross. Garlic & Dill pickles are my favorite. I could eat a whole jar in one sitting, but that is far too much sodium.

You've posted in the vegetarian section but your avatar mentions veganism so... It's *possible* they may not be vegan since some pickled products use lactic acid, however the majority of lactic acid is vegetable derived so it's unlikely.

I've been making my own simple 'Claussen Copycat' refridgerator pickles lately. Really easy, no canning difficulties and you can make just a jar or two at a time.



I do a variation of this recipe: http://www.howtopickle.com/recipes/c...r_pickles.html

Yes I am on my way to becoming vegan. Or at least trying.....haha. I eat the pickles with the Stork on the jar....can't remember. Blue lid. Haha. Now, I really like dill pickles, but the sweet Gherkins are too sweet, is there one in between?? Like, not as sweet?
