Preserve the Harvest: Pickling and Fermenting

July 24 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Register early to save your spot; space in the hands-on workshops is limited to 16 to ensure a quality experience.

Pickling and Fermenting
Tues. July. 24, 2018; 6:30–9:00pm
Crisp, tasty pickles are the ultimate test of a canner’s skill. Learn how to make a great product every time. In addition, we’ll look at the traditional art of fermentation with a hands-on sauerkraut-making session. After a short presentation on the basics, teams of no more than four will work together to make and process a batch of quick pickles as well as a jar of sauerkraut from locally grown fresh cukes and cabbage. Everyone takes home a jar of fresh canned pickles and starting to ferment sauerkraut! Space is limited!

Kate Ryan has been canning ever since she learned from her grandmother as a child. Throughout the years, her failures prompted a quest to learn the best and safest methods for home food preservation. When WSU revived their home food preservation training program several years ago, it was the perfect opportunity for Kate to brush off her skills and learn the most up-to-date science and protocols for safe food preservation.
