Central Rivers Farmshed

We organize events, programs, workshops and resources that help support a local food economy.

Get ready on Tuesday, September 26, from 5:30-8:30 pm to pickle your heart out!

Master Food Preserver and Family Living Educator for UW-Extension in Portage County Sherry Daniels will be leading participants in learning how to pickle local, fresh produce.

Pickling is one of the oldest known methods of preserving foods, and a long-time favorite among home canners. While cucumbers are the most popular pickled product, many other vegetables and fruits can be successfully pickled at home. Participants will learn:

  • The process of making cucumber pickles from start to finish
  • Factors for making the perfect cucumber pickle
  • About additional fruits and vegetables which can be pickled
  • Differences between whole cucumber pickles, spears, and chips

Participants will take two quarts of pickled goods home with them.

Find tickets at the link below, $25.00 for Farmshed members, $30.00 for non-members.  Registration ends September 21st.
