It’s National Pickle Day on Saturday, Nov. 14.

Pickles are a popular food for thousands of years according to food.com . In 2030 B.C., cucumbers were imported from India to the Tigris Valley where they were first preserved and eaten as pickles.

In ancient Egypt, people consumed pickles for their nutritional value and because they were thought to enhance beauty, food.com says. Cleopatra attributed her good looks to her full diet of pickles, and centuries later, Napoleon believed pickles offered health benefits for his armies.

On Nov. 14, our country nationally honors the culinary history of pickles. Pickles are a versatile vegetable that can be a condiment, snack or side dish.
