Winter Workshop 1 (online): Fermentation Made Easy!

January 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

$8 – $12

In this workshop we will talk about why humans ferment food (hint: flavor, preservation, & health), we will discuss some of the history and culture of different fermentations, we will make a small batch of sauerkraut (you can follow along from home if you have a head of cabbage, salt, knife & cutting board, and a quart sized glass jar!) and we will have a Q&A for troubleshooting home ferments. An instructional PDF will be provided to attendees.
