    Vorschlagto pickle
    Pons sagt zu einlegen bei Heringen oder Gurken "to pickle".
    LEO bietet unter "einmachen" an: "to confect, to preserve"

    pickle is often used when there is salt involved - this can be with fruit as well (for example a mango-chutney is a pickle)

    preserve is more neutral - can be salty or sweet - I would use preserve!

    Ich habe mich in den USA anfangs sehr amüsiert, wenn ich auf Gläsern mit Eingemachtem oder Marmelade las:
    "No preservatives added."

    Ob das etwas mit "einlegen" zu tun hat?

    Luckily a friend explained the preserative difference to me before I made a big mistake. Quite amusing, I agree... *ggg*

    In the case of the canned/jarred goods, "preservatives" are chemicals that prevent the food from going bad before a certain date. "To preserve", which I've understood here as "einlegen", is a process in which fruits are boiled with sugar and water to disinfect them, and then stored in air-tight jars. So yes, preservatives and "to preserve" are more or less the same thing, except for someone realized it was easier to do with chemicals instead of heat. A good number of people don't like to eat chemicals with their food (I wonder why?), so printing "no preservatives added" on the jar is a marketing thing.

    BogusBrainBonus (Ami): The process you describe is called "einmachen" and in a special from "einwecken" in German. "Einlegen" ist the action of placing pieces of fruit in a liquid containing things like sugar, spices, alcohol etc. So "marinate" would be a correct translation. Since these "eingelegte Früchte" usually are preserved like this it became synonymous with "einmachen".

    "Einwecken" is a special procedure invented by (or at least named after) a person: Johann Weck. The procedure uses the disinfecting heat to produce an air-tight with the help of special glass jars, a glass lid, a rubber ring and a dingsbums to hold the lid before heat is applied. Everything is very well explained here: http://www.weck.de/index.html

    The word is interesting, because AFAIK it is one of very few verbs that have been coined after a real persons name.

    [Anybody who doesn't understand what's funny about "No preservatives added" may look up "Präservativ" in the dictionary.]
