Preserving the Harvest: Fermented Red Beet and Red Cabbage Sauerkraut Class
Stretch the season by "putting up" food for the winter and enjoy a taste of summer during the long, cold months. Sauerkraut is cut cabbage that has been fermented by various lactic acid bacteria, its sourness a result of the bacteria eating the natural sugars in the cabbage. In this class, you'll learn how to make sauerkraut from field to jar! You'll harvest your own cabbage and beets from our fields, then get to work shredding and chopping. At the end, you'll have a jar of kraut to take home that will be ready to eat in 3-4 weeks, along with supplies and recipes to continue making your own. Bring a knob of ginger if you'd like to add it to your kraut!
