Programs for Adults
Pickles Essentials Workshop. How can pickles be made at home simply with maximum flavor? This lecture, demonstration, and tasting session will outline the processes and techniques of vinegar-brined pickles—both canned and quick—and fermented pickles, and offer useful tips for the home DIYenthusiast. As time permits, we’ll also discuss some of the more peculiar pickling possibilities from the fringes of preserved fruits and vegetables —soy sauce pickling, nuka (rice bran) pickling beds, salt-cured pickles, and Electric Kool-Aid pickles. Bring your questions and your pickling passion! Karen Solomon is the author of Jam It, Pickle it, Cure It; Can It, Bottle It, Smoke It; and the Asian Pickles e-cookbook and print cookbook series. She’s written about pickling and food preservation for a host of publications, including Saveur.com, The Blender, Fine Cooking, Prevention, Yoga Journal, Vegetarian Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle. Saturday, September 21, 3:30 to 5p.m.
