In A Pickle

Public Affairs

PAL Meeting Tuesday February 23rd

 50 PALs gathered at WI House on Tuesday morning for a workshop entitled “In a Pickle”. This was run by Dr Natalie Fey from the School of Chemistry at Bristol University.  Natalie explained to us the basic chemistry of how microbes, which are the cause of the deterioration of our food, are killed by the processes of jam making and pickling.  She put it all across with great clarity and good humour. We donned our goggles and rubber gloves and took part in a number of interesting experiments. 

The most frequent comment from members at the end of the morning was “If only I had had a Chemistry teacher like Natalie I would have been a lot more interested in chemistry”

The workshop was subsidised by NFWI  which has funded Natalie to work with Federations throughout the country.
