Home-Scale Vegetable Fermentation

Thursday September 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Is your garden overflowing?  Want to save all that goodness and bounty for later, using a traditional method to enhance flavor AND nutrition?

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 your questions. This workshop is suitable for folks who have never fermented before, and for those who want to learn more.
