120 VOLTS AC LIGHTS UP A DILL PICKLE,DONT TOUCH THE PICKLE
HOT GREEN PICKLE GIVES LIGHT
Using household electricity, a pickle can be turned into a rather stinky/steamy light bulb. This is a clip from Dangers of Electricity: Slightly-Mad Science from www.slightlymadscience****
As all of you science-oriented people know, a strong enough electrical current will "jump" across metal terminals. I believe the term is call "ionizing", as whatever is in between the contacts gets ionized as the current passes through it. This ionization often produces light and sparks. You may also know that water conducts electricity very well. Furthermore, Ionic salts dissolved in water conduct electricity extremely well. By the way, please correct me if I'm wrong about the chemistry here. Anyway, this may lead one to speculate as to what happens when a powerful current passes through an object that is saturated with a salty, ionic fluid....say, a pickle.... This makes a fun, if not dangerous science project. At the very least, its a great way to impress and confuse your friends. Also, please be careful as this kind of unshielded, raw current is very very dangerous.
Ever wonder what would happen if high voltage was applied to a pickle? The Electric Pickle chemistry demonstration is a way for students to see how excited electrons will emit light when they fall back to the ground state. Since pickles are soaked in salt, Na+ and Cl- ions are present. Thus pickle will conduct electricity. The Na+ when excited will emit an orange yellow color when the electrons fall to the ground state. If I were a Physics teacher I could use the demonstration to show resistance in an electricity unit. Alas, I do not teach Physics.

30. Catfish fever? Cure: Fried Pickles
Little Rock is a catfish town. Didn't know it, but Cock On The Walk proved it. Grilled catfish, Fried Catfish, Fried Dill Pickles, Hush Puppies, Cole Slaw and Cornbread made a believer outta me!
Two comedians from Chicago watch what happens when pickles are tested for the loudness of their snap.
