  • Lets Ferment!! Fermenting evening

    georginas

    CA$15.00

    Lets Learn How to Ferment ! What Are Fermented Foods? Fermented foods are foods that have been through a process of lactofermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics. Natural fermentation of foods has also been shown to preserve nutrients in food and break the food down to a more digestible form. This, along with the bevy of probiotics created during the fermentation process, could explain the link between consumption of fermented foods and improved digestion. Cultures around the world have been eating fermented foods for years, from Sauerkraut in Germany to Kimichi in Korea and everywhere in between. Studies have even shown the link between probiotic rich foods and overall health (PDF). (https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:P2vWikRC0WUJ:61.250.92.59:8888/bk21/07_down/int55.pdf+health+benefits+of+fermented+foods&hl=en&gl=us&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEEShdXIJOfY1PefXi8fIog49jpEitjlGZ6GDZpJ6KKEqT8QfArDtCwv7YuIQNPAl5XJKFe9fyf8kTuzyUL0sm4ZSh4XfIDoX57vkk5EuQFPSO16zcgttRLQG_mlaPT3ikk_PKnSR-&sig=AHIEtbTRUMJVU6J30Ye_A5qTqUS05i8YvA&pli=1) Sadly, with the advances in technology and food preparation, these time-honored traditional foods have been largely lost in our society. ( courtesy of wellness mama) PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE any or ALL so we can assist you with what to bring !! ****************************************** Kombucha making with Sasha Have you heard of Kombucha and the benefits received from drinking it? join this meet up to observe an easy method for brewing your own batch. Try a sample of store bought and home brewed. Take home a simple recipe, and info for obtaining the necessary ingredients for brewing your own batch. Its not as glamorous as wine tasting, but an evening of good fun, and laughter none the less!! WHAT TO BRING • glass container that holds 3 1/2 quarts water • 1 cup sugar (regular granulated sugar works best) • 8 bags black tea, green tea, or a mix (or 2 tablespoons loose tea) • Stock pot 1-gallon glass jar or two 2-quart glass jar ******************************************* Process We will use 2 cups starter tea from last batch of kombucha or store-bought kombucha (unpasteurized, neutral-flavored) 1 scoby per fermentation jar, homemade (http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-your-own-kombucha-scoby-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-202596) Optional flavoring extras for bottling: 1 to 2 cups chopped fruit, 2 to 3 cups fruit juice, 1 to 2 tablespoons flavored tea (like hibiscus or Earl Grey), 1/4 cup honey, 2 to 4 tablespoons fresh herbs or spices Directions Make the tea base and stir in the starter tea: Bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar to dissolve. Drop in the tea and allow it to steep until the water has cooled. Depending on the size of your pot, this will take a few hours. (You can speed up the cooling process by placing the pot in an ice bath.) Once the tea is cool, remove the tea bags or strain out the loose tea. Stir in the starter tea. (The starter tea makes the liquid acidic, which prevents unfriendly bacteria from taking up residence in the first few days of fermentation.) http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-kombucha-tea-at-home-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-173858 ******************************************************************** Raw fermented sauerkraut - with Georgina What to Bring • 1 head cabbage • 2 carrots • 1 onion • a very large bowl for mixing • a 1/2 gallon jar or 2 quart jars *************************************** Directions slice 1 head of cabbage finely then add 2 grated carrots and one onion cut up finely and put in a very large bowl with 3 tablepoons celtic sea salt - massage for about ten minutes and the salt will make the cabbage etc very watery and start breaking it down. Then put into a jar... it needs to have the fluid above the cabbage so if you need to add water you need to add a teaspoon of sea salt to a cup of water mix until salt is dissolved then pour it over to make sure its covered. Sit on the counter room temperature and eat daily till it turns into saurkraut :)) lol.. ideally leave it for at least 3-6 weeks for best krauty flavour. note you do not use any vinegar, it makes its own. Making Mead with Georgina :) there is no need to worry abut it going "bad" because if it doesn't turn into a lovely mead it makes the best salad dressing you ever tasted :)) I suggest we do 3 different types of mead as your beginner test batches :) The flavour and quality of your honey will make a big difference – please bring local honey and not store bought. MATERIALS YOU NEED to BRING HONEY - you will need 1 cup of honey to 3 cups of water or herbal teas To Bring • 3-4 cups of Honey • Stainless steel pot 1 gallon size- For your brewpot. • Clean cotton cloths (dish cloth size) to cover for the initial fermentation stage • 3 – Half Gallon (or approx) glass jugs CLEAN - These are your primary fermenters. • 3 types of ½ cup strong Herbal tea - you can bring the tea dry and we can make it here. • Wine, Champagne or ale yeast 1 package is enough - • Spoons - You need a big spoon for stirring. One that is long enough to reach the bottom of your pot. Whatever fresh fruit you would like to add to the brew Yeast specifically for mead is best, but Champagne or Ale yeast work very well. You can buy these at the local wine making stores or home hardware DO NOT USE BAKER'S or BREWERS YEAST. Baker's yeast is designed to create lots of carbon dioxide (to make bread rise) and little alcohol. Your brew will taste very yeasty and not very good. Brewing yeast is designed to ferment slower, taste better, and is available in brewing supply stores. NOTE: you can do a natural fermentation without bought yeast, but that is usually better accomplished in warmer weather when the sun is out and need to be watched carefully. Later you will need: 3 Fermentation Locks - This funny shaped contraption is usually filled with water or vodka and prevents your brew from becoming contaminated by allowing the pressure to escape without allowing room air to get in. You can also use a balloon over the top of your bottle. As your mead ferments, the balloon will blow up (fill with carbon dioxide). NOTE: You must turn the balloon inside out to prevent talc (powder that is inside the balloon to keep it from sticking together) from falling inside your mead as the pressure blows up the balloon. Time is an ally, while mean will be technically ready at about 2 months, the flavors won't develop into something "good" for 8 months to a year. After Procedure: Set the jug of must in a cool dark space and wait... Within 24 hours fermentation should begin and you will see bubbles climbing up the sides of the jug. After 7 to 10 days of fermentation (depending on temperature warmer is faster, too hot kills the yeast, too cold the yeast go to sleep), you should no longer see bubbles. If you see bubbles rising wait a few more days to ensure fermentation has completed. The mead should be racked (transferred) into a different sanitary container (jug, bottle, etc) taking care to leave behind the sediment and raisins. An additional 6 to 10 months storage in a cool dark place, will result in a tasty mead from this very simple recipe. Water Kefir - with Georgina It’s a probiotic… it’s a carbonated drink… it’s Water Kefir! • • You need to bring 1 cup sugar • Glass Jar (1 quart or half gallon) • 1/2 cup fresh fruit • Wooden spoon for stirring (avoid metal) • Towel, cheesecloth or coffee filter to cover jar • Rubber band http://wellnessmama.com/2261/water-kefir-soda/ A healthy probiotic-rich drink that you can make quickly and easily at home for pennies. Author: Wellness Mama Recipe type: Drinks Cuisine: Fermented Serves: 4+ Ingredients Hydrated Water Kefir Grains (I get mine here (http://wellnessmama.com/go/kombucha/)) ¼ cup sugar per quart of water (I like organic unprocessed Rapadura sugar) Do not use honey!! Non-chlorinated filtered water (If you use reverse osmosis, consider adding a few drops of trace minerals back in or sticking a rinsed pastured egg shell in for minerals) If you just have tap water, boil it to remove chlorine and cool before using Instructions Dissolve the sugar in small amount of hot water. When sugar is dissolved, fill the rest of the jar with cool filtered water and make sure the water is not warm- it must be at room temp! Add the hydrated water kefir grains Cover with towel, cheesecloth, or coffee filter and rubber band to keep out insects or small children. Leave on the counter (preferably at 70-75 degrees) for 24-48 hours. The longer you leave it, the more sugar ferments out, so if you ware limiting carbs, I recommend 48 hours. Don't leave longer than this! It can starve the grains! After 48 hours, strain the water kefir grains through a bamboo or mesh strainer (don't use metal if you can help it!) pouring the liquid into another container. I use a half gallon jar for the first process and strain into two quart size jars. Restart the process by dissolving more sugar in water, adding cool water and adding Water Kefir Grains. To make the Water Kefir carbonated, pour a couple ounces of fruit juice into the strained water kefir you just strained. I've found Grape, Pomegranate, Apple and Cherry to work the best. I don't recommend citrus for this part, as it makes stringy yeast like things that are not tasty! Once you've added the juice, cover the jars tightly with an air tight lid and leave on the counter an additional 1-3 days before drinking or refrigerating. Repeat the process!

Clear plastic tubing - At least two yards, about 1/2-inch (13mm) diameter. Available in hardware stores. This is to siphon the clear liquid off of the dead yeast which has settled to the bottom (a process called 'racking'). If you can, plug one end and drill two holes through the side about 1 inch from the plug. This will allow you to put it on the bottom without sucking up the dead yeast from the bottom. Bottles with a cork or lid that will stop the air from escaping. ***************************************************************
