Pickles

In the USA, the term pickles refers specifically to pickled cucumbers.  These are known as gherkins (or, less formally, "wallies") in the United Kingdom.  (In the US, gherkins are small pickles.)  They may be produced by fermentation or by simply treating cucumbers with vinegar.  Pickles are often flavored with turmeric and dill.  They are generally used to add piquancy to a main meal, and on or with hamburgers and other types of sandwiches.

Outside of the USA, the term "pickle" sometimes refers to any sort of pickled food.  These can range from pickled onions to complex pickles produced for the Indian market.

If a recipe calls for "pickles", it's the US usage; if it is any other kind of pickle, it should be more specific (i.e., pickled radish, pickled pepper, etc.).
