Workshop: Fermentation, Gut Health, and the Immune System

Saturday | February 09, 2019 | 2:00 pm — 3:30 pm

With over 60% of the immune system located in our guts, promoting a balanced and diverse gut microbiota is a foundation for good health. Learn the secrets to making simple, fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, pickled vegetables, and beet kvass. You’ll roll up your sleeves and grab some Ball jars, preserving the season’s bounty and nourishing your guts with some friendly microbes! All participants will sample a variety of fermented foods and prepare a fermented food to take home. The cost of the class includes the cost of materials.
