Refrigerator Pickles & Jams

Sep 29, 2021 | 5:30 pm 6:30 pm CDT


Think pickles and jams are hard to make? Think again! In this virtual workshop, we are taking you through two simple preservation methods that use the power of your refrigerator to increase the shelf life of your produce. 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 kept as a 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! 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.
