There are countless types of pickles. Gherkin pickles, dill pickles, garlic pickles, kosher pickles, sour pickles, cornichon pickles—it’s endless. Each type has its own unique properties and flavors, ranging from sweet to sour to spicy. Pickles are also grown all over the world, so taste, style and size vary by region.
What are cornichons?
Cornichons, also known as cornichon pickles, are essentially mini versions of the pickles you know and love. Because of their size, they tend to have more of a sweet and sour taste. Cornichon pickles are also typically spiced with mustard, dill, and onions for a zesty flavor. Small, crunchy and refreshing, cornichons are perfect finger foods for guests.
