Are you curious about fermented foods and would like to learn to make them at home? There is no greater place than Brockwell Park Community Greenhouse’s organic gardens to learn, taste and make with seasonal produce.
For our first workshop of the year we will ferment:
* citrus to add to your tagines, stews and sweet treats,
* spicy sauerkraut as a perfect condiment for wintery meals
* kombucha to please all your friends and family.
We will 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 leave with three ferments to take home and the confidence to ferment seasonally in your kitchen.
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.
