It is time we start preparing our ferments for Christmas, so join us at the Greenhouses to learn about different fermentation techniques, gut health and the importance of including a variety of fermented foods in our daily diet. You will taste many delicious ferments that Jelena has prepared for this workshop and we will make piccalilli sauerkraut, zingy turshiya brined vegetables and probiotic-rich water kefir.
At the end of the workshop, you will leave with three ferments to take home and the confidence to ferment seasonally in your kitchen, year round.
If you can bring three large (c.500ml) or six smaller (c.300ml) clean, recycled jars with you, please do. If not, we have kilner jars we can supply at cost and a limited supply of recycled jars for free.
