Want to connect with your community while you’re stuck at home? Interested in learning new ways to make the most of your groceries? We’ve got the perfect quarantine activity for you.

You’re invited to join CJP for a virtual pickling event from the comfort of your kitchen. Jeff Yoskowitz, co-owner of Brooklyn-based The Gefilteria, will lead us through a fun and interactive demonstration. Together, we’ll learn how to make sauerkraut and pickle a variety of vegetables using basic ingredients and supplies. Jeff will also discuss the art of pickling and its importance in Jewish cuisine, history, and culture. (Who knew?) We hope you’ll join us so we can learn and create together.

Zoom link provided after registration.

Shopping is not required; you can use whatever’s in your kitchen, or simply follow along and pickle on your own later. Want to gather supplies and prep your kitchen in advance? Here are the ingredients you’ll need—and remember, Jeff will help us work with what we have!
