While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Don't be fickle, it's just pickles - November 14 is National Pickle Day!
Whether you chomp down on gherkins straight from the jar or sneak some crunch into your sandwich, pickles are cool as a cucumber ... that's been pickled, of course.
Pickles get their moniker from the process it takes to make them. This funny name comes from the Dutch word pekel, meaning "brine." Leaving cucumbers in brine or vinegar and allowing them to ferment creates our favorite fantastically crunchy pickles.
And don't forget to relive some nostalgia with "The Little Rascals" and sing your own rendition of the Pickle Song.
