Pickling by the Pint
Want to learn to pickle cucumbers, beans and lots of other vegetables? The world of pickles doesn't stop with bread and butter cucumber slices atop a burger or a dill pickle spear alongside a tuna sandwich. Picture how some local summery produce could brighten up your winter as a side to vegetable curry or a roasted chicken.
Learn water bath canning and pickling basics with Chef Marilyn while putting up freshly harvested vegetables from the Cure Organic Farm fields. Besides having the basic knowledge of how to safely process acidified foods, you'll take home a variety of jars of pickled cucumbers and other vegetables, plus recipes and ideas of how to creatively use them later for cooking and with meals.
