Fermenting Fruits and Vegetables – Chicagoland
September 15, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
- Lacto-fermentation is an ancient preservation method that greatly increases the vitamins in vegetables and other foods, and also makes the minerals more available. The food is preserved for a long time by the lactic acid produced during the fermentation process. Many fruits, vegetables and dairy products can be fermented. Fermeted foods are bursting with enzymes and ‘good’ bacteria and are very beneficial for your health…and they are tasty too!
- In this class you will learn about the history and the benefits of fermented foods. You will learn what is needed to make fermented foods at home. You will also learn some simple recipes that you can easily make in your own kitchen.
- Tamara will demo techniques for fermenting fruits and vegetables and you will be able to take some home (if you purchase the kit)
- You will receive all session notes and several recipes to get you started.
Registration is required via Elawa Farms.
Class is $75. A fermenting kit is available for purchase of $20. (Highly recommended so you can take home some of the foods we ferment!)
