Just a quick reminder to everyone that tomorrow, November 3rd from 12:30 – 3:00 pm is the Pittsburgh Canning Exchange’s first Canning Swap! The swap is being held at the new Pittsburgh Public Market location at 2401 Penn Avenue in the Strip District. Here is a schedule of the day’s events:
- 12:30 PM: Canning Swap participants arrive to set up and Pickle Contest entrants drop off their two jars of pickles for judging.
- 1 PM: Canning Swap commences!
- 1:45 PM: Canning Swap ends; pickle and Crested Duck Charcuterie tasting begins. Legume’s Trevett Hooper speaks on cooking with preserved food.
- 2:15 PM: Cook.Can.CSA.’s Sara Kreidler (that’s me!) does a beet pickling demonstration; Pickle Contest winner announced!
I hope to see lots of you guys at the Canning Swap tomorrow, and hope you will stick around for the pickled beet demonstration I’ll be doing towards the end of the swap. If you can’t make it to the swap tomorrow and are looking for information on pickled beets, here is my recipe.
