Fermenting Vegetables, a Follow-Along Virtual Event (FAVE) - Sat, Jan 16, 2021 Promo
Learn to pickle fermented vegetables for a fresh, new probiotic start in the new year! Fermenting is an age-old method of preserving produce but its health benefits are far-reaching and can even be life-changing. Learn all the tips and tricks in this hour-long hands-on virtual workshop with Nicole Easterday, creator of the FARMcurious Fermenting Set and veteran fermenter.
See the list below of everything you'll need ahead of time as well as a link for purchasing any of the harder-to-find items. The aim is to keep it fairly simply so you don't have to stress about finding unusual items.
Date: Sat, Jan 16, 2021
Time: 11am-12pm pacific
To follow along in this class you'll need to have on hand:
- 1-2 lbs vegetables; some good ideas are carrots, radishes, cabbage, beets, etc.
- 4 TBSP salt (preferably with no additives)
- Herbs & spices you might like to add; some fun ideas are dill, bay leaf, thyme, rosemary, black peppercorns, garlic, onions, ginger, turmeric, hot peppers.
Tools & Utensils:
- Cutting board
- Chef's knife
- Quart-sized Mason Jar
- Optional: FARMcurious Fermenting Set - this makes the process much easier but is not required. If you don't use the fermenting set, it's a good idea to have either a fermenting weight which will fit in a Mason jar or a smaller, clean jar which can nest inside the larger jar. We'll talk more about this in class!
