Basic Vegetable Fermentation Workshop
January 18, 2023
Have you been wanting to try your hand at fermentation? Maybe you've heard about the benefits of eating fermented foods for a healthy gut and aren’t sure where to start. Or perhaps you have too much cabbage (or other veg) in your CSA this year and want to learn preservation techniques to reduce waste. Whatever the reason, we're here to help with this class in basic vegetable fermentation!
Join us as we learn two fermentation processes to preserve cabbage - using dry salt and wet brine - which you can take home and apply to just about any vegetable you have. During the workshop, you’ll be making your own sauerkraut and kimchi - and you’ll bring home one quart of each preparation, with a grand total of two quarts of fermented veggies!
