Last week students from PS 102 made their own jar of picked cucumbers. Mrs. LoFranco shared her secret recipe for refrigerated pickles. Fresh cucumbers, dill, onions, water, vinegar, salt and a good dose of patience were the ingredients. The label on the pickle jar listed these ingredients, "open on date," and "Made in Brooklyn."
Students also learned about preserving vegetables, fruits and other food to make it last through the winter.
