Basics of fermentation


You will gain fascinating insights into a preservation method that used to be very common for our grandparents and that we hardly know about today. Fermenting with lactic acid bacteria is not only an old but also a tried and tested method for preserving vegetables and herbs. Furthermore, vitamins, minerals and enzymes are preserved as well. The taste of fermented vegetables is uniquely intense and highly aromatic.

This traditional preservation method is inexpensive, sustainable and very trendy. In this workshop, after a comprehensive theoretical overview, we will preserve vegetables in combination with herbs. Feel free to chat with organic herb expert Wolfgang about different suitable combinations for your fermentation project. Learn the most important rules with this type of fermentation and glean many tips so that your hard work will be rewarded. The samples made by you can be taken home.
