Fermented Vegetables for Health, Fun and Flavor!

March 13, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Fermented foods are HOT! Learn about why they are so good for our bodies, and some simple base recipes to create your own healthy, delicious dishes.

This class will cover fermentation history, chemistry, health benefits, and fermentation methods, through lecture and hands on instruction. Students will make a variety of probiotic rich ferments, including kim-chee, a variety of sauerkrauts, spicy pepper salsa, fermented red onions, and dairy free water kefir. Each student will take home a jar of kraut.

Lunch will be served, and students will enjoy a tasting of vegetable ferments, dishes made from them, and seasonal varieties of sparkling water kefir.
