• Red cabbage

The cheaper ones are horrible but the proper kalamata ones are fine.
You forgot to mention these for the Yes:
so hard to find a nice one
also, what are you doing? where are pickled onions - the greatest pickled food. see also, pickled rollmop herring.
also, olives are amazing. but yes, fresh olives > rubbish ones stuck in brine for six months
capers are average
pickled peppers and pickled chilli peppers are nice
I've never tried pickled onions, no idea why not.
Olives make me gip. I've tried them on a number of occasions and every time had to spit them out due to gag reflex kicking in.
Have have you reached 30 years of age?
Get some. They're brilliant.
My mum always gets a jar in when I go to see her.
As long as you remember to extract the cocktail stick holding them together in your haste to get the little slimeballs inside your mouth.
in chillis and mustard seeds.
The plate of pickles you always get in a good turkish/lebanese place is always amazing. Basically any crunch vegetable tastes great pickled.
I've never even heard/seen of them.
Pickled walnuts are indeed ace.
or do you dislike them full stop?
I don't mind olives in brine as bought from the supermarket in a jar. I like olives generally, though.
is that how you spell it?
my housemate eats pickled beetroots for snacks D:
Especially the crinkle cut.
and i'd need a pilot for that kind of thing, so i might be out of luck
the only kind of beetroot i can eat
Sometimes I eat a whole jar in a sitting. BEETS.
1. Fresh Olives
4. Pickled onion
6. Sweet chilies
Can't even abide the idea of pickled eggs but most of the pickled veg available is alright with me. Piccalilli -- YUM.
When the OP says pickled anitpasti... I'm not sure I know what that means.
Google says stuff like pickled scampi, pickled fish. Is that right? Eurgh.
so i guess that means artichoke hearts and all that jazz too
A mini supermarket.
They don't have any str fry sauces - but they do have an entire aisle of pickled goods in jars
...pickled onions. The jarred stuff of kings. However they are seemingly very difficult to get right. Any hint of softness is BAD. Silverskin ones are BAD. They have to be rock solid, cloved up to fuck and so sharp your eyeballs start to melt upon first crunch.
I made up a little rhyme for pickled onions:
If they crunch, they're in my lunch
If they sag, they're in my (bin)bag.
but fresh olives are pretty immense. likewise pretty much all the antipasti stuff, although i had some mushrooms stored in some kind of vinaigrette once and was unconvinced. i'm pretty addicted to pickles though, especially beetroot. i can just go through a jar of that shit, no problem.
would like to try.

I once formed a 'pickled onion' club with Gary Williams. We'd challenge ourselves to more and more extreme ways of eating pickled onions.
It disbanded when I 'surprised' him by putting a pickled onion in his cup of tea and he nearly choked to death.
Jittering, trembling, chops-pinkening laughter.
