Pickling and Fermentation Workshop
September 11, 2022
Enjoy the summer’s CSA bounty of peppers all year long by pickling and fermenting! Preserved veggies are a delightful addition to charcuterie boards, salads, tacos, sandwiches and so much more. Join us for this fun and informative workshop where you will make pickled peppers as well as a fermented pepper paste. We’ll also discuss how to make quick refrigerator pickles. You’ll learn techniques for basic canning while working through the entire pickling and fermenting process in class. Everyone will bring home one jar of pickled peppers, one jar of fermented pepper paste as well as a canning checklist and the recipes to try at home.
Bring your own apron, chef’s knife and water bottle. Snacks will be provided.
