I attended a new Skillshare class on last Monday, with the one and only – and my personal favorite – Carrie King. I took Dr Cousin and future Dr. Girlfriend too, and we had so much fun I don’t even know where to start.
“In this hands-on class, we’ll make at least three different types of quick refrigerator pickles, two savory and one sweet. Refrigerator pickles are a super way to get into preserving at home – you get all of the flavor and benefit of homemade pickles, but without the hassle of worrying about canning and sterilization equipment for long-term shelf storage.
These won’t be your average cucumber pickles. We will discuss and experiment with different fruit, veggie and spice combinations. Everyone will leave feeling confident enough to make pickles of all sorts at home. Not only will you leave with a few quick pickle recipes, but you’ll also get to bring home one or two jars of the pickles we make in class – so that you can enjoy the spoils of your newfound quick pickling skills!”
The class indeed was hands-on, and the outcomes were delicious. Picture a class where the Chutney we made was so heavenly, we were fighting for the last bites. Also try to imagine a fast and absolute fun way of pickling without the hustle of canning and sterilization.
I’m really getting into cooking, and home made everything. It’s such a great feeling when my dinner party guests ask me where did I get the pickles from and I can say “I made them myself”. I mean how cool is this!?
