Pickles, Olives, Brine & Magic

Since the dawn of agriculture, people have been aware of the need to store up provisions against natural or man made disasters. Adding salt to foods was a method adopted for preserving produce for consumption at a later time. Being able to preserve food in this way really allowed civilisation to expand beyond the boundaries of where food was readily available. The discovery and habitation of many parts of the modern world would not have been possible without such knowledge and practice of food preservation.

Whilst it is all too easy to visit a local shop to purchase pickles and fermented products, there are plenty of reasons to understand the process if not to pursue making your own then just for the security of knowledge.

This class is designed to provide an indepth understanding of preservation, the techniques, ingredients and uses.
