Fermentation has been used as a way of preserving foods for thousands of years; it is a specific process that can be applied to countless food items, most of which can be made from the comfort of your own home!
The process of making Sauerkraut is the basis for many fermented vegetables. Once you have the knowledge and confidence to make it, the skies the limit with the amazing flavour combinations you can make using a myriad of different vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices.
In this 1.5 hour hands-on workshop via Zoom, we will delve into the wonderful world of fermentation, with a focus on Sauerkraut. You will learn all about the process, how to incorporate fermented vegetables into your meals and the many health benefits these nutrient rich foods can offer. You will also (of course) make some for yourself.
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.
You have the option of upgrading to our Make-Your-Own kit which will be sent to you a week prior to the workshop or alternatively you can provide your own equipment.
Please Note: For both options you will need to provide your own vegetables.
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!
