Pickle and Pickled Food Quotes


"On a hot day in Virginia, I know nothing more comforting than a fine spiced pickle, brought up trout-like from the sparkling depths of the aromatic jar below the stairs of Aunt Sally's cellar."
Thomas Jefferson

 

“In a movie theater a few days ago, I go to the candy counter, and there's this huge menu -- candy, popcorn, ice cream, pickles. They're selling individual pickles. How does this happen? Where am I?”
Bill Griffith, ‘NY Times’ (1999)

 

“Preserving was almost a mania with Mrs. Bergson....When there was nothing to preserve, she began to pickle."
Willa Cather, 'Death Comes for the Archbishop' (1927)

 

Hunger is the best pickle.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

 

“Some may smile at the idea of ripe cucumbers, and say that the very thought of them, like the smell, is offensive....But whatever other uses are made of the cucumber, I entreat the reader not to use it in the form of pickles. These, of almost all the forms of vegetable substances, seem to me worst adapted to the human stomach; and I cannot but hope will be shunned by every reader.”
‘The Young House-keeper’
by William Andrus Alcott (1846)

 

“French wines may be said but to pickle meat in the stomach, but this is the wine that digests, and doth not only breed good blood, but it nutrifieth also, being a glutinous substantial liquor; of this wine, if of any other, may be verified that merry induction: That good wine makes good blood, good blood causeth good humors, good humors cause good thoughts, good thoughts bring forth good works, good works carry a man to heaven, ergo, good wine carrieth a man to heaven.”
James Howell (1594-1666)
