Fermentation Workshop:

Bring your ingredients to make your own foods, and have your questions answered!  Workshops are a chance for people to come and make their own products. Instruction is given and everyone can experience for themselves how to make these recipes.  Please bring your own equipment: knife, cutting board, big mixing bowls and jars or crocks. (if you have a folding table, please bring it too).

We will be making traditional Sauerkraut, Beet Kvass and Fruit Chutney.

Please bring the listed ingredients. You may participate by bringing ingredients for one or all of the recipes.

  • Sauerkraut: 2 heads of cabbage, 2 quart jar, 1 food-grade plastic lid (such as from a yogurt container), salt, whey or probiotic or both.
  • Beet Kvass: 3 to 4 medium beets scrubbed clean and ready to cut up, salt, whey and/or probiotic caps. 2 quart jar and lid.
  • Fruit Chutney: About 3 cups of any kind of fruit and a peeler (3 apples & 3 pears for example) 1/2 cup previously soaked nuts and 1/2 cup of some kind of dried fruit, 2 lemons and a lemon peel grater, whey and probiotic, salt. A mix of firm to soft fruit is nice like apples and pears or cherries and apples.

The Chapter will supply extra spices and demonstrations and instruction for each of the recipes.  A few items will be available for sale, or you may bring your own tools and jars.
