Pickling Party

Happy fall harvest! Last night we did something that we’ve been wanting to do for well over a year – host a pickling party.

It does help that we had access to a commercial kitchen – but that small detail aside, we bought a bunch of awesome local produce (thank you, Four Seasons Farms in Maitland, NS) and created jar after jar of delicious, pickled foods.

The process was pretty simple, check out the photo gallery below for a play-by-play. All you really need are mason jars (sanitize them), vinegars, salt, sugar, pickling spice and any combination of vegetables/herbs/items that you want to include. The common kitchen equipment you have at home will do the trick.

Here are my top three pickled foods that I’m excited to crack open; only six weeks to go until they’re ready!

Dill pickled eggs.

Pickled sliced golden beets with peppercorns, garlic, dill and basil.

Pickled garlic with black peppercorns and basil.
