Fermenting Vegetables, a Follow-Along Virtual Event (FAVE) - Sun, May 3rd
Learn to ferment your own pickled and cultured vegetables for condiments and meals. Perfectly preserved and rich in essential vitamins, minerals and probiotics, these tangy snacks will change the way you look at food - it's not just dill pickles and sauerkraut anymore! We'll show you how to set up fermentation in a Mason jar, what to look for and how to avoid trouble. We'll cover some easy crowd-pleasers as well as some more unusual things worth trying.
We'll send you a list 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: Sun, May 3, 2020
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!
