Fermented Vegetables for Better Health: Urban Homesteader Workshop
Lacto-fermentation for Better Health is part of our Urban Homesteader Workshop Series for Summer 2017. Designed for the person who wishes to take advantage of fresh local food, Urban Homesteader Workshops teach you the skills you need to can, process, preserve and cook whatever is fresh from your garden, farmer or fisherman.
Using the simple technique of lacto-fermentation, Alison Magill of The Well Cultivated Life, will teach you how to make your own yogurt and use the probiotic-rich whey to ferment cabbage as well as other vegetables. We will fill your jars with the best of the season’s local vegetables and learn this traditional fermentation technique that boosts nutrients and aids digestion. Participants will need to bring two quart size canning jars and 2 pint size canning jars for this workshop. All other supplies and materials will be provided.
