Summer may be over, but it doesn't mean you can't still squeeze in a few pickled goods for fall.

In the infographic below by Fix.com, learn a step-by-step routine on how to pickle just about anything — well, fruits or veggies, at least.

The first rule of pickling, as the graphic suggests, is washing and chopping your fruits or veggies. You also want to be alert about your flavouring options. For example, dry flavours can include things like dill seeds, bay leaves and dried chili peppers, while going for a fresh flavour may include shallots, garlic or whole dill.

Picking the right fruit and veggie is also important, Fix.com notes if you don't have access to garden-fresh veggies, choose produce that is blemish-free.

"Keep in mind if you wish to pickle cucumbers, there are different varieties. Pass on salad cucumbers or ones that are waxed and look for pickling cucumbers."

Check out the graphic below and find out how to make brine and pickle your favourite foods for fall. Let us know, what do you like to pickle?
