- Pickles has no tag wiki / usage guidance, and 19 questions.
- Pickling has "Preserving food by immersion in vinegar or brine" which is just a definition of the word and not usage guidance, and 91 questions.
Only 3 questions have both tags. I see no pattern like "asking about using pickles gets the pickles tag, while asking about making them gets the pickling tag." For example the question I noticed had both tags and was trying to identify a pickle served at a restaurant.
Do we need both? The only way I'm ok with both is if they get decent usage guidelines and we do a retag. If we were to keep only one, pickles, despite having fewer uses, seems like a better choice to cover both making them and using them.
