Keeping it Alive: Fermented Food & Drink

Note that this Workshop is Saturday only.

With April Prusia

Tuition $120

Materials fee: $10

The distinctive flavors of fermented foods contain beneficial probiotics that can improve your digestive health and basic nutrition ~ something many cultures have known for thousands of years. Plus, they are easy and affordable to make in your own home. Discover how to keep your produce alive with propagated live cultures and beneficial bacteria. Learn to make fizzy and refreshing fermented beverages such as water kefir, kombucha and ginger brew and how to choose recipes and vegetables that showcase the fun fermentation process. Everyone will leave with a jar or two of a live crunchy mix of fermented veggies, a 10 oz bottle of each beverage, and the know-how to do it at home.
