Event Overview

Drunken Pickles is taught by Chef Joe, who will discuss what to look for in produce, the basic steps in the canning/pickling process, how to ensure food safety, plus some of his favorite heirloom recipes. This intro is a semi hands-on canning class, with a lecture, and a step-by-step demonstration. You'll touch on all the basics of making alcohol infused foods, focusing a little more on pickling and the canning process; because acidified foods are the more difficult ones - and the ones that post the highest risk if you don't do it right.


Pickling usually refers to the process of fermenting a food in salty brine. However, another kind of food preservation can involve simply soaking food in a solution that keeps it from spoiling. Alcohol, including Vodka, Gin, Whiskey and Tequila, are some liquids you can use. You can prepare both vegetables and fruits using this method, with delicious results. 

- choosing equipment (jars, hot water bath vs. pressure canner)
- how to process pickles with alcohol
- how to choose your produce
- ingredient choices
- good resources
- and take home some pickles!

    This was such a fun class. Joe was such a great instructor. He explained everything in great detail and clearly. Joe was so patient and answered all my questions. The 90 minute class went by so fast and I didn’t want to leave. I am definitely coming back!!!

    Was a really nice experience overall. The studio was small but quanit and created a friendly environment for the class. There’s not much to pickeling so this is all about learning and socializing. Would do another class at mL!

    First of all, Paired is a simply beautiful space that was in itself a treat to visit! Second, the class was a lot of fun and the owner who taught it was very laid back and friendly. Overall, had a great time and will be back.

    This was a great class! Very fun and carefree, and a different way to spend a Saturday evening. Bonus points for having a great selection of wine in store, and some flatbreads for us to enjoy while learning about pickling.
