Pickled fruit refers to fruit that has been pickled. Pickling is the process of food preservation by either anaerobic fermentation in brine or immersion in vinegar. Many types of fruit are pickled. Some examples include peaches, apples, crab apple, pears, plums, grapes, currant, tomato and olives. Vinegar may also be prepared from fruit, such as apple cider vinegar.
Pickled peaches may be prepared from medium-sized, non-melting clingstone peaches that are small-seeded. In the United States prior to around 1960, some were prepared from small, unripe freestone peaches. They may be prepared with sugar, cinnamon, cloves and allspice to add flavor. Pickled peaches may be used to accompany meats and in salads, and also have other uses.
Pickled pears may be prepared with sugar, cinnamon, cloves and allspice to add flavor, and may be referred to as spiced pears. They may be prepared from underripe pears. Pickled pears may be used to accompany dishes such as roasts and salads, among others.
Buai khem is Thai for "salted (Chinese) plums". They are prepared from Prunus mume (also known as "Chinese Plum" or "Japanese Apricot"), and are pickled, dried, and salted.
