Fermentation 101 with Contraband Ferments

July 6, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Smell, taste, discuss and make a few simple seasonal ferments. In this workshop we’ll explore and craft delicious types of ferments that are easily made at home without any special ingredients or equipment. You’ll leave with a basic understanding of how fermented foods are made, why they are good for you and how to make your own sauerkraut and fermented veggies at home.

About Tickets:

This workshop is a free demonstration. Fermentation jar kits are available for purchase if you’d like to take home your own fermented veggies. Kits are $10 each. We like to make sure our programming is accessible to everyone so we are offering a base rate of $5 per kit if you pre-reserve. If you are able to contribute beyond that, pay it forward and help support local artists!
