Tonight: sauerkraut and pickles

I'd meant to post this earlier, but:

Tonight, September 20th, from 6:30-8 at the Dryden Community Center Cafe (1 West Main St, Dryden), community member Nancy Norton will be teaching a class on lacto-fermenting your garden produce! Lacto-fermentation is the original "pickling" process and can yield delicious and nutritious foods with little work! All you need are vegetables, salt, and time- the rest of the work is done by beneficial microorganisms. The class is free and all are welcome to come learn about and taste some delicious pickled products. Join us!

We'll discuss:

  • What is lacto-fermentation? How does it work?
  • What are the benefits?
  • What foods can be preserved this way?
  • How do you know the food is safe?
  • How do you do it?

Nancy will demonstrate the process of making two popular fermented foods: sauerkraut and sour pickles.

This is from the always-amazing Dryden Community Garden.
