Pickling is the process of preparing (usually for preservation) a food by soaking and storing it in a brine (salt solution) or vinegar-based (acidic) solution.

The pickling process can also start from using dry salt instead of brine. The moisture of the food being pickled can turn the salt into a brine solution. See an example in Kumquat. Preserved Lemon is a similar example.
