We find it in most of our cupboards but do you know where pickles come from? The pickle is the fruit of a herbaceous plant belonging to the Cucurbitaceae family. Picked before maturity, the gherkin is originally an unripe cucumber. The time when pickles grew in the gardens of our grandmothers seems forgotten, just like the French terroir pickle which almost disappeared in 2004 when the pickle magnates turned to the continent of the rising sun leaving our farmers and our French know-how. But Florent and Henri Jeannequin, pickle farmers from father to son for more than 50 years, did not disassemble! In 2012, in partnership with a local company, they decided to put the pickle picked by hand in Chemilly sur Yonne back in a jar!

It is thanks to a happy coincidence that we owe the vinegar...Leave a bottle of wine open, it will turn sour! Refreshing drink, natural antibiotic, preservative or condiment, vinegar has many qualities. Tasty, artisanal vinegar goes wonderfully with salads: lettuce, watercress, baby spinach, tomato, endive or mixed salad... Are you more of a carnivore? It deliciously deglazes meat...
