FEAST in the Sunny Point Garden! Plus pig and pickles
I'm so excited to help organize this event with such generous businesses! On August 7th, 2017 Riverbend Malt is donating a pig (fattened on their spent grain) and Sunny Point Cafe is preparing a FEAST to benefit FEAST!
Food and Beer will be served in the Sunny Point Garden along with a variety of pickles I'm making, because what goes better with pig than pickles?
Refrigerator pickles are super easy and versatile - try using summer squash instead of cucumbers, or switch up the herbs and spices depending on what you've got and what you like.
2 cups water
1½ cups sugar
3 cups cider vinegar
6 cups sliced cucumbers
½ cups chopped garlic
2 Tbsp. dill - dried or fresh
1 Tbsp. dried basil
10 bay leaves
4 tsp. salt
❖ In a sauce pan bring the water and the sugar to a boil.
❖ Remove from heat and allow to cool a few minutes – then add the cider vinegar.
❖ Make sure the brine is fully cool then add the cucumbers and remaining ingredients.
❖ Put into the fridge and allow to sit overnight in the brine.
❖ Store in the fridge.
