Russian-style malossol gherkins are a great classic for serving with salmon and other Petrossian delicacies. In Russian cuisine, 'malossol' is the term used for foods that are very lightly salted. Malossol caviar is the iconic symbol of the Maison Petrossian. Pickles are another Russian speciality that have been available in our online delicatessen for many years. Originating in Poland, these large pickles are first prepared in a brine that's very lightly salted and is seasoned with many highly aromatic herbs and spices like dill, garlic and mustard seeds. This legendary recipe gives these Russian-style malossol pickles a more sweet and sour flavour compared to French pickles.
