Fermentation is an ancient method of preserving the seasons harvest. Fermented foods are found in the history of various cultures and were upheld for their special life giving properties. Come learn with me what these people knew instinctively as essential to life... The Art of Fermentation.  


Fermentation For
Gut Health

Why should I eat fermented foods?
We will discuss the reasons fermented foods are beneficial, especially in todays world, and their various health benefits.

What is fermentation anyways?
We will get a little geeky and talk about the science of fermentation and the real difference between the food that is rotting in your fridge and fermented  foods. We will also discuss which fermented foods are truly probiotic and which are not. 

How do I safely make a fermented food?
We will go through each step of how to make fermented veggies (two ways: Sauerkraut & Brine Pickling) tips and tricks to success, and last but not least, get hands on in the fermentation process preparing your very first fermented food; Sauerkraut!

What do fermented foods even taste like?
I will have a selection of homemade fermented foods for you to try. Selection will vary with the seasons, but I will always have sauerkraut. 

Each participant will also go home with:
- An outline of the workshop information, including some recipes. 
- An airlock & weight, so you can go home and keep making awesome, safe, ferments. 
- A jar brimming with packed cabbage ready to become sauerkraut. 
- Access to a private Facebook group where you can ask questions, share your ferments, and get advice.
