Looking for fruit pickle recipes, other than pickled prunes and watermelon rind pickle. I can't find any here, despite various searches. ;o)

Any favorites out there, either on food52 or elsewhere? Thank you. ;o)

Antonia - David Chang has several recipes for fruit pickles in his cookbook, cherries, pears, etc. They are quick pickles though and have a short shelf life.

Smitten Kitchen has a recipe for pickled grapes that I've never tried but it looks fantastic - http://smittenkitchen.com/2009/04/pickled-grapes-with-cinnamon-and-black-pepper/. Also fruit chutneys and salsas with some whey added to make them lactofermented would be good, but that might not be what you had in mind.

Oh, and when I was in Russia I had pickled watermelon - the whole watermelon. And here is a recipe for that. Can't say it is one of my favorites, however.
