Living Cultures:

Make your own Sauerkraut and Kombucha!

Fermenting your own vegetables is delicious, easy, and safe, not to mention phenomenally nutritious. In this hands-on workshop we will go over the historical importance of fermentation, review the health benefits of cultured
foods, and cover fundamental
techniques for fermenting vegetables and kombucha. We will also taste delicious examples of fermented foods.

You will leave the workshop with:
* hands-on experience and clear information on how to safely and easily   ferment foods at home;
* an overview of the history and health benefits of fermented foods;
* a jar of your own fresh-made sauerkraut.
