PICKLES, PICKLES, PICKLES -- Online
This is a VINEGAR pickle workshop and does not involve fermentation (sorry).
Together we will make three different types of refrigerator pickles:
Refrigerator Dill pickles
Refrigerator Sweet (Bread and Butter) pickles
Recipes will be shared within a day or two after you register. We will do all preparation together.

In a Pickle -- Fermented Pickle Workshop
You've eaten pickles all of your life. Besides cucumbers there are pickled okra, green beans, beets, and onions. You use them to spice up your sandwiches and salads. And now, you can make them yourself!
Together we will make deli-style dill pickles and discuss other vegetable possibilities. If there is a particular vegetable besides cucumbers that you would like to ferment, have it available at the workshop and we'll discuss it and hopefully get you fermenting that too!
Recipe(s) and equipment list will be provided one week in advance. Nothing fancy, expensive, or out of the ordinary.
Saturday, September 26, 2:00 p.m. Eastern --
Fermentation Basics -- Online
Cabbage is one of the easiest vegetables to ferment. We will talk about the benefits of fermented foods and create a quart of sauerkraut together. We will also have plenty of time for Q&A.
Ingredients and equipment list will be supplied at least a week in advance. Recipes and additional resources will be provided.
Create a Fermentation Zoom Party tailored to your interests!
Possibilities include fermentation basics, pickles, yogurt, kimchi.
Contact me and we can make arrangements to Zoom or Skype.
$20 per person. 80% will go to charity. Minimum of 4 people.
Let's make Yogurt! -- Online (not currently scheduled)
Do you love yogurt, but have a fear of making it yourself? If our ancestors were able
to make it without refrigeration, you can too!
Together we will make a quart of yogurt from scratch using a make-shift double boiler over the stove. All you will need is some plain milk (NOT ultrapasteurized) and some other yogurt to be your starter. Thermometer is preferred, but you can makeit without one if you don't have one -- our ancestors didn't have thermometers,
yogurt makers, or instapots!
Additional recipes and resources will be provided.
Kimchi -- Online (not currently scheduled)
Kimchi has been made for centuries, and has recently been recognized as a superfood. Some of the benefits of kimchi include aiding digestion, improving immune function, blood sugar stabilization, and decreasing cholesterol. Kimchi is a fermented food that contains good bacteria/probiotics and is good for gut health. Plus it’s delicious!
In this workshop you will make a quart of kimchi and learn about variations of kimchi. This workshop does require some advanced preparation from participants. Arrangements can be made for an additional fee to provide a kit including Korean hot pepper, fish sauce, and local delivery. Other ingredients must be bought by the participant. Ingredients list and recipes will be shared at least one week in advance.
