Description

INTRODUCTION TO FERMENTATION

In this introductory session we’ll gather for morning tea and chat over delicious baked goods. Then after a walk around the farm and a ramble through the market garden, we’ll gather around a long table to talk about why fermented foods are so good for our health before we move into making a variety of fermented foods and drinks and how to maintain SCOBYs (mother cultures) in your own kitchen.

We’ll be covering in depth:

  • Water kefir
  • Dairy kefir
  • Kombucha
  • Sauerkraut
  • Fermented dill pickles

You’ll be making a jar of kraut yourself to take home, as well as a jar of pickles. You’ll sample the kefirs and kombucha and take home all three mother cultures with you so you’re ready to ferment as soon as you get home. We will also provide you with detailed notes and recipes.

The class includes morning tea and a farm lunch made from produce grown and raised at Buena Vista. It also includes a tour of the farm to see the animals and vegetables we grow here.
