Product Details

This class will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of lactic fermentation and pickling. Together we'll make pickled cucumbers, Korean kimchi, German sauerkraut, and Moroccan preserved lemons to illustrate pickling techniques from different cultures (no pun intended!). You'll leave class with jars of everything you've made, along with the knowledge necessary to pickle ingredients at home safely and creatively, as well as how to incorporate them into your diet to add a bit of zing and lots of valuable nutrition to any meal.

Why we love it
