Home-Scale Vegetable Fermentation Katie Korby, Fermentation Manager @ Real Pickles

Tuesday August 25, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Is your garden overflowing?

Learn how to make living, cultured, probiotic sauerkraut at home using traditional methods.  You’ll leave knowing the basics to get you started on cabbage, beets, garlic, carrots, turnips and onions. We’ll talk about what equipment you need, how to start, what to look for during the fermentation process, and work on recipe development. We’ll discuss troubleshooting and answer all of your questions. This workshop is suitable for folks who have never fermented before, and for those who have and want to learn more. 

Our instructors will be Katie Korby and Lucy Kahn, both from Massachusetts’ own Real Pickles

Katie has served as Real Pickles’ Fermentation Manager for over five years, developing recipes, testing batches and ensuring food safety compliance.  Her experience has included collaboration on a UMass study on the microbiome of Real Pickles’ production facility, and speaking at the Pickle Packers International Conference.  When not at Real Pickles, she gardens and homesteads in rural Colrain.

Lucy Kahn has worked at Real Pickles Co-operative for five years, first as production staff, then assistant production manager, and now as a sales representative. In 2016, she became a worker-owner at Real Pickles. Before working at Real Pickles, Lucy worked on urban farms and educational farms while studying global food systems and food justice movements.
