Yes, it's International Pickle Week...and in celebration, here's some of our favorite pickles we've seen, tasted, wondered about and enjoyed in Ukraine. Above, pickles from a memorable lunch under the trees last summer in a Ukrainian village in Donbass. Got a pickle picture of your own to share? Head on over to our Facebook page to post it there.
Train food--pickles and string cheese (out of frame, I believe, vodka).
Pickled tomatoes, two different markets.
Cucumber pickles, and cucumbers for pickling.
Pickled mushrooms, top and a vegetable assortment. Below, every kind of imaginable pickled mushroom and below that, pickled apples.
