Intro to Fermentation

$45.00

The art of fermentation preserves and enhances foods and flavors of the season. Learn to create ferments that deliciously support health, gently cleansing and nourishing you and supporting your body. 

In introductory class, you will become familiar with the basic techniques that will help you transform produce into nutritious, probiotic foods, with a focus on seasonality and letting nothing go to waste. We will make use of local produce to preserve lemons, create sauerkraut, and make fermented salsa and pesto.

Community Can Jam: Stone Fruit

$65.00

The season of jam is upon us! With ripe fruit bursting off the grocery shelves, it’s time to dust off that big canning pot and put up a batch of summery goodness to last through the winter. Making jam is a hot and messy affair best managed with a little help from our friends. Our Community Can Jam is a new experiment - it’s not a class, exactly, though jam-master Shakirah Simley will be on hand to guide us through her recipe. Rather, it’s an old-fashioned community gathering that will include equal parts socializing, learning, and standing over a hot pot of jam.
