Make Your Own Kefir: Dairy & Non-Dairy

Improve your digestion and immunity with a delicious probiotic beverage--kefir. Did you know kefir can be made from milk as well as water or coconut water? In this class, we'll learn to make them all, and have samples too. Kefir involves the process of fermentation, which is an age-old and universal practice for preserving foods. Not only does it preserve nutrients, fermentation breaks food down into more easily digested forms. Foods that are difficult to digest (such as cabbage, milk, or soybeans) are more readily digested once they’ve been fermented. (Think sauerkraut, kefir, and tempeh.) Eating fermented foods is an incredibly healthy practice, directly supplying your digestive tract with probiotics essential to good digestion and strong immunity.

In this workshop you’ll learn the why’s and how-to’s of kefir-making. Never tasted homemade kefir? Now’s your chance, because there will be samples of both dairy and non-dairy kefir. Best of all, you will take home your very own jar of Coconut Water Kefir, which you will have made in class.

Instructor Catherine Lassen has always been interested in doing things from scratch, even living without electricity for certain segments of her life. She has a tried and true appreciation for the old-fashioned way of doing things, and isn’t afraid of a little purple sauerkraut juice seeping out of it’s fermentation jar. Her classes on lacto-fermentation offer a small window into her kind and compassionate approach to life, which she has shared with many on her journey as a celebrated teacher. A mother of 6, grandmother of 7, a yoga instructor, and a former homebirth midwife; she loves earthy pursuits: gardening, cooking, preserving. When she’s not puttering in the kitchen, she’s out bike-riding or ballroom dancing.
