They live on a 40-acre hillside homestead in the Applegate Valley of southern Oregon, and Kirsten blogs at www.ferment.works. Books by This Speaker: Fermented Vegetables, Fiery Ferments

Kids Kraut!

Kids love to make and eat sauerkraut. Vegetable fermentation is one of the oldest, and perhaps the most healthful, food preparation (and preservation) methods. This rediscovered culinary art is easy and safe, making it a wonderful, accessible way for even the youngest “chefs” to begin participating in the preparation of their family’s nourishment. And that is empowering. This workshop is a hands-on program in which kids can taste some fresh, raw sauerkraut and then make their own small batch to take home and ferment. Stop by at this drop-in-style session and enjoy the fun. Space is limited.
