About the Course

Perfect Pickles - cookery course at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.

Pickling is an age old British method of preserving fruit and vegetables, traditionally making the most of autumn abundance, ready to be used in the depths of winter. A preserving technique that is often overlooked, pickling done well and with a little imagination can turn the humblest vegetable into a special accompaniment for the table.

You will make
Pickled red cabbage, Thai pickled shallots, Pickled plums, Sweet cucumber pickle

Tutor: Sara-Jane Brough
