Pickling: Traditional, Easy, Probiotic Method

Amherst Garden Club – Evening Meeting, September 5th

AMHERST – What to do with that bumper crop of cukes growing in your garden this year? Come to the September 5th evening program with Rivka Schwartz where she will demonstrate how easy pickling really can be.

Are you interested in your health and in easier cooking methods?  If so, this presentation is for you!

Traditional, old fashioned deli pickles can’t be beat, and they are easy to make.  The probiotic method of pickling is a simpler process of preserving food than water bath canning and comes with extra benefits. This traditional method also adds flavor and health-promoting, gut protecting probiotics.

Rivka will demonstrate her techniques which are also applicable for making pickled vegetables using natural fermentation.

Rivka says “I make my own pickles, relish, sodas and just about anything else that can be fermented for my own family.  I enjoy the time I spend creating probiotic foods and love sharing these skills with others.”

Rivka’s experience after raising 3 boys is that a nutritious diet, including foods rich in probiotics, is a cornerstone of good health. She studied wellness coaching at the Mayo clinic as well as completing a two-year course in herbal medicine. Over the past 14 years, she’s been helping people with health concerns using natural foods and taught about wellness issues and diet. Rivka is also a wellness coach, cooking instructor, naturalist guide & educator at the Beaver Brook Association, Hollis, NH.

Come to this presentation and you will take home recipes and instructions for the traditional method for preserving vegetables.

The meeting will take place at 7:00 pm at Parkhurst Place, 11 Veterans Road, Amherst, NH.  The public is welcome to attend with no fee.
