Refrigerator Pickles & Jams
Aug 10, 2022 | 5:30 pm – 6:45 pm CDT
Think pickles and jams are hard to make? Think again! In this virtual workshop, we are taking you through two simple methods that use the power of your refrigerator to make delicious treats. It’s easy enough for the whole family to join in!
First, we’ll make refrigerator jam by cooking fresh berries with sugar and simple flavorings. Once the mixture cools, it can be refrigerated and used as a fresh jam for morning toast, the best ever PB&J’s, desserts, and even cocktails. Next, you’ll learn an easy method for quick refrigerator dill pickles. Using vinegar, sugar, and salt, we’ll turn cucumbers into pickles with only a few minutes of work. You’ll be able to use this quick pickling method for all kinds of produce from onions to carrots! Note: these refrigerator pickles and jams are meant to be consumed after making and are not shelf-stable like true fermented and canned products.
During this workshop, you’ll also learn best practices from our appliance experts on where to properly store ingredients in your refrigerator as well as tips on how to keep your produce as fresh as possible.
