Brain & Belly Day!

Fermentation Demo!
Have an abundance of produce but don’t know what to do with it? Of course you can freeze, dry, and can, but have you heard of the traditional method of preservation called lacto-fermentation, otherwise known as fermenting? You are probably most familiar with the fermenting of grapes to wine and grains to beer, but you can easily and quickly ferment your produce from your garden or the farmers market (hint, hint) in your own kitchen without fancy tools! 
Lauren of Honest Desires Farm will give you a basic introduction of what lacto-fermenting is, what tools you will need, some additional resources, and some simple recipes ideas to get you started, along with showing you how to make your own sauerkraut. Yum!
The demo starts at noon
