Breakdown - DIY - 200

Pickling exists, in part, to prevent decay. While this method of food preservation has become less essential with modern technology, this ancient technique is both nutritious and delicious. 


1) Watch History in a Jar: Pickles, from The History Channel

2) Create pickles of your own. You can do traditional pickles, or refrigerator pickles. (And no, you're not limited to pickled cucumbers!)

Members should expect Dill Pickle spices & a refrigerator pickle recipe from Souper Spices in their Scout Packs this month. 

3) Take a photograph of your finished pickles and share it on Instagram or Twitter with the tags #QuestScouts and #Pickles.

Remember, if you post to a public Instagram or Twitter account with the tag #QuestScouts your photo will show up on our Scout Board for other Quest Scouts to view and interact with.

4) Describe your pickling experience in the comments below. What recipe did you use? How did the pickles turn out?
