If you read my blog at all, you may be thinking one of the following:
1. Fermentation sounds revolting. Why does she keep going on about it?
2. OMG. I love fermentation. I named my sourdough starter [insert name].
3. I have never tried fermentation and would like to but it scares me. I don’t want to poison my family.
I teach a fermentation class here in Northern California but since most of my readers live far from me, I’ve decided to teach a session online. In this webinar, I’ll demonstrate how to make sauerkraut and I’ll try to answer your fermentation questions, including:
Is fermentation safe? Yes. I’ll explain why.
How do I know if my ferment is ready? For many ferments, simply have a taste. If you like the flavor, it’s ready.
How long should I ferment my food? It depends on how strong you want the flavor.
Do I need to buy fancy equipment? I’ll show you the simple tools I use, which work well. (But if someone buys me this crock for Christmas, I won’t complain.)
Are fermented foods healthy? Yes, they are very healthy. I’ll talk a bit about that too.
The online demo will take place in a Google Hangout—a group video chat for a maximum of 10 people (nine of you plus me). You will need a Google account to join. If you don’t have an account, you can get one here.
Not sure fermented foods are for you? Here are 5 reasons to eat them.
