Fermentation is the act of transforming foods with the use of bacteria, yeast, fungus or enzymes. The art of fermentation is a wonderful way to preserve the vibrancy of fruit or vegetables. In this class, you will create a delicious ferment of your choice that will be ready to eat in just a few short weeks. The instructor will focus on fermenting sauerkraut and preserving citrus however the concept of fermentation can be applied to many different kinds of fruits and vegetables. Create a delicious, healthy, fermented treat with the family!

Supplies Needed at Home:

  • Fermentation vessel - 1 quart is a good size but smaller is okay (a mason jar with a lid will do, as well as an empty glass jar of your choice with a lid. Just be sure it's cleaned with soap and water. If you have a fermentation crock, all the better but unnecessary.)
  • Fruit or vegetable to ferment (I recommend vegetables - beets, cabbage, carrots, radishes, onions or a lower sugar fruit like citrus or apples)- choose about 1 small cabbage per quart jar or 6 to 8 lemons per quart jar
