Fermenting Vegetables, a Follow-Along Virtual Event (FAVE) - Date TBD
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.
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!
