Join us for our fourth Zoom fermentation workshop. Previous remote ones have been great and worked really well.  Listen into this lovely podcast on Jelena where she talks about remote fermenting amongst many other things.

If you would like to attend this Zoom workshop, please book below and we will send you your log in details in the week before the workshop.

Are you curious about fermented foods and would like to learn to make them at home? Jelena will help you make some unique ferments at this workshop using her own recipes.

We will also chat about different fermented foods from around the world, how to incorporate them in your diet and what potential health benefits they bring with regular consumption.

You will end the workshop with at least two ferments to eat at home and the confidence to ferment seasonally in your kitchen.

This week we will look at one of our favourite condiments, but in fermented form – piccalilli sauerkraut. We will also brine vegetables that you have at hand, creating perfect meze ingredients that you can have daily with different meals.

Ideally you will have the following ingredients:
1/2 white cabbage
1 carrot
1/6 cauliflower
1/2 red pepper
1 red chilli
fresh turmeric or powdered
yellow mustard seeds
nigella seeds
and any other veg you will have in the fridge – celery stalks/carrots/ beets/peppers/kohlrabi/pumpkin/swede/celeriac etc + vs herbs/spices.
but don’t worry if you can’t get all of this – we can improvise from what you do have.

A good knife
A grater
A chopping board
Some big bowls
6 clean jars 330ml or bigger
Labels/marker pen
