Fall Ferments Workshop

  • Genspace 33 Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11217 United States (map)

Learn to Ferment Your Own Fall Vegetables in this workshop at Genspace taught by Cheryl Paswater of Contraband Ferments.

Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing methods still used today. Scientifically known as zymology, it is the conversion of carbohydrates into alcohols, carbon dioxide, yeast, or bacteria. Beer, miso, sourdough, kefir, kimchi and many other delicious foods we love are the product of fermentation.

In this course we will cover the basic science behind making ferments focusing on using all our fall veggies: beets, turnips, pumpkins, and more. We will talk about why it’s good for you, and we’ll teach you how to make it yourself. If you are interested in Old World food preservation, gut health, or fermentation in general, this is the class for you! Each participant will take home a jar of delicious fermented fall vegetables.
