|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 18, 2019


In the 19th century, pickles provided families with a variety of foods and flavors to help them survive the long winters with the food they had stored in their root cellars. Today, pickles are considered less a necessity, but provide additional flavors to contemporary menus.

Help make pickles and vinegar at the historic farmstead and discover how pickles were stored and cared in the root cellar. Then sample a variety of modern pickles from around the world in the Learning Kitchen, and make a jar of refrigerator pickles to take home for $4 per jar.

Cost: Included with $6-12 site admission/MNHS members free
