Make your own healthy and delicious fermented foods, sauces and Kombucha drinks with Peggy Beer from Eldertree, a local business specialising in fermented foods.
This fermented foods workshop is split into 2 parts. In the first part we will learn how to make Kombucha and how to do a first and second ferment. We will talk about lacto-fermentation and explore and taste a variety of different fermented products from around the world.
In the second part we will get practical. Please bring your own knives, cutting boards and storage containers to take your Kombucha and your started ferments home in and let the bacteria do their work, as well as the vegetables you would like to ferment (cabbage is usually a good one for a first go).
Peggy will provide salt, spices and knowledge on how to do it. There will be the possibility of having a go at making your own sauerkraut (fermented cabbage), as well as fermenting other vegetables, making kimchi, fermented chilli sauce and fermented chutney. If you are interested in any specific recipe please get in contact with Peggy beforehand and she can give advice on what ingredients to bring on the day.
