Following in the footsteps of Thomas Jefferson, who wrote how he enjoyed pickles on a hot summer\u2019s day, the Wilton Historical Society will present pickling in this month\u2019s Colonial Cookery and Customs for Kids on Saturday, March 19, from 11 to 12:30. This monthly workshop teaches children in fourth through eighth grade about food from this region in colonial times. While the food cooks, they hear about Colonial manners, morals and way of life. Pickling opens up many possibilities beyond cucumbers \u2014 cauliflower, radishes, green beans, even eggs. The workshops will feature relatively simple dishes made with local, seasonal ingredients. Colonial recipes used will be adapted for modern kitchens. All participants will sample their own creations and take home recipe cards as well as any leftovers. Previous sessions have produced bannock cakes and pease porridge. \u00a0\u00a0 The cost is $15\/members; $25\/non-members. Registration is required: firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-762-7257. \u00a0 The Wilton Historical Society is at 224 Danbury Road.
