Maille Gherkins (Cornichons)
Gherkins are a type of small cucumber that is typically pickled and used as a condiment or a snack. They are also known as "pickling cucumbers" or "cornichons." They are typically smaller and more bitter than common cucumbers and have a firmer texture. They are often used in sandwiches and salads, as well as in traditional dishes like tartar sauce and pickled onions.
