LEARN TO MAKE REAL SAUERKRAUT
at Curious Farm in Cedar Mill/NW Portland
(no classes scheduled at this time)
Cost: $75, includes equipment and ingredients (organic, when possible)
CLASS DESCRIPTION: Healthful as well as delicious, real sauerkraut gets its sourness from beneficial probiotics that develop and transform the cabbage during fermentation. The hardest part of making sauerkraut is having patience while it ferments because it takes a month or more to ferment!
During this class, we’ll talk about vegetable fermentation in general, and each student will prepare two special half-gallon, airlock fermentation jars with different batches of sauerkraut so that they can ferment safely in your kitchen until they are ready. You will choose from among a variety of ingredients and spices to create sauerkrauts that your family will love.
As you’ll discover, the ingredients we choose and the way that we cut the vegetables make a profound impact on the finished sauerkraut. That is why each student will prepare two different batches in class. You will understand so much more about how flavors and textures work in fermented foods by creating two recipes.
