What You’ll Learn
In this class you’ll learn the simple steps of homemade, shelf-stable pickles, from sourcing veggies to jarring, sealing and processing. We’ll also cover the tools and tricks of preservation, such as safety and shelf-life, as well as various pickling methods and canning history. Finally, we’ll sample the delicious fruits of our labor, and you’ll get recipes, tips and a jar to take home.
Truth: Learning to preserve fresh fruits and veggies is the most liberating (and fruitful) skill I’ve mastered. I’m still amazed at how fun and easy urban canning can be; and I look forward to sharing my passion.
Skill Level: Beginner; but those with canning skills are welcome to join and learn some new tricks.
You Will Walk Away with the Ability to:
- Source and select ingredients
- Cook and preserve pickled vegetables, while maximizing flavor
- Fill and process jars for shelf-stable pickled vegetables
- Share your homemade jar of pickled vegetables with friends
