Using the time honored traditions of fermentation, you will learn how to preserve fresh produce so that you can reduce food waste, save money, and eat local throughout the year. We'll discuss the theory and practice of fermentation as well as the healing qualities and nutritional importance of probiotic fermented foods.
Each participant will get to make a jar of fermented vegetables. Handouts with instructions and recipes will be provided so you feel comfortable fermenting at home.
