Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
I recently borrowed my mom’s old food dehydrator (made in 1979!) and realized this was a perfect chance to use it. So I sliced up some fruit, set it in the dehydrator, and got back to work. Couldn’t have been much easier.
Behold... "The Frickle!" Not only is this a fast method for pickling, but can also make for a more dynamic pickle when pressed for time.
