The Quick Pickle Kit is designed specifically to generate income for nonprofit organizations and schools via home pickling. Any fresh garden produce imaginable—from carrots to seaweed, along the classic cucumber—is fair game for pickling.

Based in Los Osos, California, Andrea Wasko and her partner Meaghan Gilbert talk with correspondent Tom Wilmer about their pickling kit and partnerships with schools and nonprofit organizations.
