Ferment Vegetables for Health and Flavor
Workshop Instructor: Jereme Zimmerman

All you will need to create your own delicious fermented vegetables are vegetables, salt, water, and some basic kitchen materials! Fermenting vegetables through wild fermentation (the use of wild yeasts and bacteria to initiate fermentation) is a healthy, enlivening practice that will help restore the balance of beneficial microbes in your gut and introduce you to a world of new flavors. In this workshop, you will learn how to ferment cabbage, beans, carrots, peppers, and myriad of other vegetables as a method for preserving the harvest without the use of any modern conveniences. Emphasis will be on cabbage ferments such as sauerkraut and kimchi but techniques and recipes for other types of ferments will be provided as well.
