Free Pickling Class

When: Sat., Feb. 5, 2 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Salt your pork, pickle your peppers. It's not just meat that needs preservation in the long winter months, and the other half of Good Food Month's charcuterie week is dedicated to pickling. Karen Solomon, author of Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It, will co-teach a free workshop on Saturday that spans a range of pickling techniques, from the standard (vinegar) to the chic (miso). Co-host JoEllen DeNicola, a Good Food Awards finalist, will also show you how to make her storied arame and ginger sauerkraut salad. There will be lots of tasting, and the two picklers will stick around after class to sign books. Macy's says the signing won't last long, though, so bully your way to the front before Solomon and DeNicola are whisked off to their escape helicopters.
