Ferment your own Food and Drinks


Did you know you can ferment just about any kind of food including meat, dairy, vegetables and fruit? Thursday, Oct 19th, 6-8pm, Sandy Littell will be demonstrating how to prepare dairy, fish, meat, vegetable, and fruit ferment. Students will learn to prepare a couple of drinks, a couple main dishes, and side dishes in addition to making dairy kefir and creme fraiche. Included in the price is a taste of each for everyone, and a kefir starter grain to take home!


Are you trying to get more beneficial microbes (probiotics) into your diet but not sure what products are really effective? Follow your ancestors’ lead and learn to ferment your own food and drinks!
It’s easier than you think, inexpensive, plus provides you with trillions of live  probiotics–better than any product you can buy.

Fermented foods are foods that have been through a process of lactofermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics.

It is the process whereby you allow beneficial microbes (found naturally on fresh food) to grow and proliferate, thereby giving you a more nutrient-dense, enzyme-rich, tangy (less sugars because the bugs eat em), probiotic-rich food. Not to mention it’s a natural preservative. This is super nutrition we’re talkin here!
Sandy Littell will demonstrate how to start with what’s growing in your own garden.  Bring your own lidded jar if you wish to take home kefir grains to make your own at home with fresh milk.
