Fermentation is on the tip of everyone's tongue. We hear all about the benefits of eating fermented foods; healthy digestion, better mood, stronger immunity, and pay lots of money for small jars of goodness. Certainly, as a nutritional therapist, I regularly recommend probiotic foods to clients to support their gut health, hormones and immune systems.
But the true secret of fermentation is that it's really simple to do at home. With a few techniques and a couple of new habits, you could be gaining all that benefit for very little money. Fancy learning how? If so, come along to my fermentation workshop and hear all about it.
- Learn how to make sauerkraut. Bring home a jar with you. Plus try a seasonal ferment.
- Learn how to make kombucha, and take a scoby with you to get started straight away
- Learn how to make and use kefir and how to order your grains
- Try all of the above at a special tasting
You'll definitely learn something new and will get to try some new flavours.
