The Art of Pickling Workshop


Who says that pickling stops with cucumbers? Do you know you can pickle fruits and many vegetables? Pickling is one of the oldest ways to preserve food and also one of the cheapest. Acidic environments increase and enrich food flavours and extend the life of a good harvest or seasonal bulk vegetables and fruits. In class, we will be pickling seasonal products together and learning hands on many other recipes you can use through all year. Participants will bring home handouts with recipes and resources as well as their own creation: two jars of pickled vegetables and fruits.
