Thanks again Zora! I've wondered about pickling since your posts detailing your own pickling prowess.

Mrs. Wheelbarrow gave a practical and entertaining class. She made quick countertop pickle of red onion, a water bath Dilly Bean pickle and passed samples. There was also a taste of a pickle from Grandma Wheelbarrow's South Carolina housekeeper's recipe: Luvey's Sweet Pickle Chips. I'm invested now, if only to make Luvey's not-too-sweet pickles. The Dilly green beans were intially introduced as an excellent Bloody Mary garnish, but was also later described as a good side with charcuterie


Mrs. Wheelbarrow was profiled in September 2010 on NPR's Morning Edition. Her current 2011 project Charcutepalooza was described in a January 2011 WaPo article.

On her website are classes, mainly sold-out, that cover canning and charcuterie.

If there were other DR folks in Strosnider's outdoor class today, say hi next time.
