Blair’s Path To PicklingNovember 29, 2010 at 10:39 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment
Blair Nosan, Adamah alum and former Pickle Apprentice, shares how she came to call pickling her profession on the Jew and the Carrot blog.
“So while I call myself a pickler, I truly see myself as a preservationist. I’ve come to believe that my work is only marginally about the literal preservation of a vegetable at risk of spoiling. What keeps me going is the preservation of our knowledge, of the rhythms our ancestors had mapped onto their very existence, and the grounded evolution (or, if you will, fermentation) of our Jewish and human selves in an ever-changing world.”
