Lacto-Fermentation 101

Cultured and fermented foods are making a come-back on the food scene, and maybe you have heard of some of these nutritional powerhouses. Kefir, Yogurt, Kombucha, Raw Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Kvass, Pickles… the list is really endless. But what is lacto-fermentation and how can you do this at home?  

Natural fermentation is one of the oldest food preservation techniques we know about. A True traditional food and for good reason. Fermenting a food naturally enhances its digestibility and neutralizes any anti-nutrients it contains. They are powerhouses for your digestion and supporting a healthy gut with loads of beneficial bacteria (those probiotics we hear so much about and spend LOTS of money buying in supplement form) and enzymes, making this a living, healing, and extremely nourishing way of preparing food.

As a bonus, fermentation is actually one of the very few food preparation techniques that actually increases the nutrient content of a food and the bio-availability of those nutrients. Almost everything else we do to food makes it less nutrient-dense and bio-available.

While we are bringing in the harvest this summer and fall, fermenting foods is a fabulous way to preserve your hard work and your veggies for months.

  • What are the nutritional benefits of cultured foods and why you want to eat them

  • How to make your own starter culture – it’s easier than you think

  • How to make your own cultured veggies with recipes that you can follow or make your own

  • Take home a quart of your own homemade sauerkraut

Cultured Dairy – Lacto Fermentation 102

A continuation of our start in the lacto-fermentation 101 class, we will continue with how to make cultured dairy. 

Dairy gets a bad rap in the nutritional world because it is not the same nutritious food it once was. With the advent of Ultra-Pastureization, the natural living digestive properties of milk have been killed, making dairy hard to digest. But did you know that it didn’t used to be that way. For centuries, milk and cultured milk products have been nutritious, delicious and healing foods that our ancestors have used for years. 

In this class we will explore the why’s behind our change in food today and how you can make choices that support your optimal health in ways that are EASY and FUN for the whole family.

  • How to make your own homemade butter

  • How make cultured buttermilk
