Fermentation for Beginners
February 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pmFree – $25
Fee: Sliding scale, $0-$25.
Fermentation is one of the oldest and best known ways to preserve food. Not only does it expand the storage life of produce, making locally grown or home-grown food accessible in winter, but it also enhances flavor and boosts nutrition! Total beginners are absolutely welcome to join this workshop. Anneli Carter-Sundqvist will explain the fermentation process and introduce you to the basic supplies you’ll need.
Anneli will demonstrate – from her home kitchen – how to make sauerkraut and kimchi using in season winter storage crops like cabbage, carrots, rutabaga and more. She will also talk about how to ferment other produce such as cauliflower, corn and onions and how to make fermented salsa and hot sauce!
Anneli Carter-Sundqvist lives with her husband on a highly self-sufficient homestead on Deer Isle, ME, where among many other things they grow and store almost all of their own food – including 40-50 gallons of fermented vegetables each year. Since 2009 they have operated the Deer Isle Hostel, providing budget accommodation and sustainable living education for 100s of travellers each year.
