Home Fermented Vegetable Preserving

 Registration is closed for this event
After learning how to ferment vegetables in this class you will be equipped to begin experimenting with many different types of vegetables using supplies that you probably already have on hand.

Learn to preserve tasty, healthy vegetables cheaply and easily in your own kitchen!

Why learn to ferment your own creations at home? The practical answer is that it preserves the nutrient density of food, grants us a way to preserve food long-term, and provides probiotic health benefits. The at-home kitchen chef though will find it adds a depth of artisanal nuances of flavors to food. And despite the scientific name, fermenting vegetables is easy! After learning how to ferment vegetables in this class you will be equipped to begin experimenting with many different types of vegetables using supplies that you probably already have on hand. 

In this class we will cover:

- A general overview of vegetable fermentation

- Ingredients that can be used and how to prepare them

- Materials and supplies needed

- Step-by-step instruction and guidance in how to create your own home-made fermented vegetables

After a guided demonstration and Q&A, each participant will take home the materials necessary to make a jar of fermented vegetables along with basic fermentation recipes to continue creating ferments at home. Following the in-person class, participants will receive a video link of the demonstration to allow you to follow step-by-step instructions for making your creations at home. The instructor will be available to contact for troubleshooting for up to a week following the class.

She and her husband follow a whole-food plant based diet and reside on a 1-acre food forest/garden/orchard located between Hallam and Wrightsville. Laura’s nutrition and culinary certificates include: a Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate from T.
