Making Pickles in the Preschool
You can make pickles out of lots of things. Since we've harvested more peas than we can eat, let's pickle them to preserve them longer.
We've filled up our baskets with our fresh vegetables. Now we wash them off.
After we wash them we de-string them.
We pack them into jars.
We add some chopped garlic.
We measure out equal parts vinegar and water, with a bit of salt and sugar to make our brine.
We heat the brine up. After it's cooled we add it to our pickles and seal the jars. In two weeks we'll have a tasty pickled treat that we grew and prepared ourselves.
