Girl Scout Class: The Art of Quick Pickling

  • Southern Food and Beverage Museum 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard New Orleans, LA, 70113 United States (map)

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum is partnering with Girl Scouts of America to host occasional cooking classes. Only Girl Scouts are eligible to join these classes at this time.

Did you know that you can pickle just about any vegetable you can grow?  Pickling is a great way to preserve food that would otherwise spoil! It enables us to enjoy vegetables year round, even when they are not in season. We'll learn how the process works and use herbs, spices, and vinegar to make a pickle mix that adds a whole new flavor to a variety of veggies. Girls should bring an 8 oz jar to take home the veggies they pickle. SoFAB will have a limited number of jars for sale on the day of if you forget!

There will be three hour-long sessions, with a maximum of 25 girl scouts per hour. Please purchase your tickets for the correct hour.


Please be sure to purchase your advance tickets by Friday, November 13 to ensure we have enough supplies for your group.
