Fermentation

Fermented food is so great for you. Things like kombucha, kefir and even sourdough bread create good bacteria in your gut that helps with your immunity and digestion.
 
Are you held back from fermenting because you don’t have the fridge space or the time to be continually feeding a “starter”? Then this fermented vegetable workshop is for you.
 
We will show you how to easily, quickly and cheaply ferment some vegetables to use in family meals. Make the most of in-season vegetables from your garden or the market and end up with great fermented products that the family will eat. We'll show you how to make:
- Fermented tomato sauce (ketchup),
- Ukrainian fermented tomatoes
- Funky fermented carrots, radishes and cauliflower
- Fermented kumara spread
- Fermented beetroot
- And for the adventurous, Kimchi!
