I'd forgotten about sauerkraut, which is one of my favorite foods, but no, I
have never been served pickled anything other than cucumbers.  But I also
live in Salt Lake City, which has the largest number of terrible foreign
food restaurants of any US city.  That is, you can get just about any kind
of world cuisine here, but it is mostly awful.

Yum.  That sounds so good!  I particularly like the thought of pickled
cauliflower, don't know why....

I love the story about your grandmother and the pickled apples, too.  :)
