Jar Series Class #1: Pickling

  • Wild Willow Farm & Eduaction Center 2550 Sunset Avenue San Diego, CA, 92154 United States (map)


This is class #1 of our jar class series where we are learning the dying art of preserving and canning food. In this class, you will learn how to preserve food with fermentation using seasonal veggies and farm fresh herbs. Pickling is a great way to preserve your summer's bounty, as well as add extra flavor and nutrition to your produce. You will learn how to make both vinegar and brine (lacto-fermented) pickles. Enjoy a jar of organic pickles and directions to take home with you.

Topics include:

  • brief overview of fermentation and health benefits
  • the difference between vinegar and lacto-fermented pickles
  • visiting our ingredients in the field
  • how to make two different classes of pickles
  • combining herbs for flavor
  • pickle tasting
