How about you Aussies out there? What do you consider weird American

But it's a *beet*. And reddish purple and squishy. Maybe it's a  
texture thing. :-)

See, that's why I asked the question. It hadn't occurred to me that  
other places might consider pickled cucumbers, whether dill, sweet or  
whatever to be weird. Nor pickle relish, pickled peppers or jalepenos.
