Fermentation is an ancient and nutritious form of food preservation which has been used all around the world for thousands of years. It is a process that can be applied to countless food items, most of which can be made simply from the comfort of your own home!
In this 2-hour workshop, we will delve into the wonderful world of lacto-fermentation, a form of fermentation used to create delicious fermented vegetables such as kimchi and sauerkraut. You will learn all about the process, the variety of lacto-fermented foods available, how to use them and the many health benefits these nutrient rich foods can offer.
This will be a hands-on course where you will make two jars of fermented vegetables from a choice of Organic, locally grown produce and a selection of herbs and spices. One ferment will use the dry-salt method of fermentation, traditionally used to make sauerkraut and the other ferment will use the brine method of fermentation, traditionally used to make brine pickles.
There will of course be plenty of tasters throughout the day too.
By the end of the session you will have the skills and knowledge to be able to make delicious fermented vegetables at home. You will have access to the Consciously Cultured Fermenting Forum on Facebook which will provide you with as much support as you need in all your fermenting endeavours.
Whether you are newbie or looking to hone your skill, there is sure to be something for everyone.
The course will be led by Caitlin Walsh; founder of Delea Fermented Foods. Caitlin was introduced to fermented foods and the microbiome whilst on her travels. Having suffered with gut problems for most of her life Caitlin has found regularly eating fermented foods has improved her own health dramatically. Unable to find fermented foods locally in Cornwall she decided to set up Delea as a way of sharing her knowledge and experience of these delicious and nutritious foods and to get more people fermenting!
