Pickling Demo at Readington Museums

Pickling Demonstration with Susan McLellan Plaisted at Readington Museums on Sept. 10 from 1:00pm-4:00pm.
Susan McLellan Plaisted MS RD CSP LDN, will demonstrate colonial pickling methods. From the first produce of the season to the late fall, the preservation techniques of the 18th century were daily occurrences. This presentation opens one eyes to a broad definition of a “pickle” and includes drying, potting and more.
Plaisted is the Proprietress of Heart to Hearth Cookery, a food history business based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She offers demonstrations of 17th century through 19th century Colonial American and European cooking methods, practices, and receipts (recipes), as well as pre-European-contact and post-European-contact Native American foodways.
Plaisted is a founding member, past president, and past newsletter editor of the Historic Foodways Society of the Delaware Valley, a member of Culinary Historians of New York, The Colonial Chocolate Society, and was active in Past Masters in Early American Domestic Arts. In addition, she is a member of the Food History Committee of both ALHFAM (Association of Living History Farms and Museums) and IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals).
