Trader Joe's French Cornichons

French Cornichons, Trader Joe's BrandI love these firm petite Parisian dill pickles from FRANCE! These delightful mouthfuls are called French Cornichons, pronounced “cor-NEE-showns.” These French-style pickles are called often referred to as Gherkins, but in the United States a Gherkin is sweet. It's confusing, but once you taste these beauties, you'll be surprised at the flavor burst it gives to recipes. Each French Cornichons is about an inch and half in length and less than a quarter inch in diameter. The taste is mildly sweet with an acidic-tartness and the tooth is a snappy-crunch.
Raw French cornichon; Marathi Tondali | Creative Commons | Wikipedia.orgThese are freshly picked mini cucumbers used to create the tiny French Cornichons Pickles that you often see on deli trays and fancy sandwich plates.

Taste: acidic-tart & snappy-crunch


Where to BUY Cornichons

Find Cornichons in the take-out section of fancy delicatessens with the olives, pickled peppers, etc. or in jars. I love the Trader Joe’s Brand of French Cornichons because their price is so inexpensive!

Avoid Cornichons that contain Sulfur Dioxide or Sulfites
. These type of preservatives are difficult to digest and cause flatulence in many people.
