minnesota_preston_forestvilleThroughout the growing season, there are periods of shortage and abundance of foods, making preservation an essential part of life. At Pickling, Drying and Sugaring Day, Road Trips Foodies can assist the gardeners in picking the freshest and plumpest garden vegetables, including peppers, cucumbers, beets, onions, cabbage and other heirloom varieties.

All are foodstuffs traditionally found in Thomas Meighen’s garden at Historic Forestville, 21899 County Road 118, Preston, Minnesota.

In the kitchen, interpreters will demonstrate various 19th-century food preservation techniques, including ways to preserve meats, vegetables and fruits, and employing sugar, vinegar, salt and alcohol as preservatives.

The day takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. August 15, 2015, and is repeated August 22, 2015.
