I'm really excited to be doing a workshop in collaboration with the Low Tech Institute later this month! LTI is an awesome local resource, dedicated to teaching low-tech homesteading skills. To learn more about them, check out their website here. Fermentation fits in perfectly with their philosophy, and I'll get the chance to bring something new to the table: Japanese pickles. See the event page here, and check out the promotional flyer below.
We've got another workshop coming up, and this one is happening soon! Becky will be showing us how to make her own special kraut recipe - it uses seaweed and a whole bunch of interesting seeds, and I can personally attest to its deliciousness. This workshop is sure to be a lot of fun for ferment newbies and veterans alike. Check out the promotional flyer below for more details.
This will be one of MFC's first workshops! I'm hosting, and it'll be on Japanese pickle making in general, and nukazuke in particular. Nukazuke, a classic pickle still made in Japanese households today, is unique in that the fermenting medium is rice bran instead of the typical lacto brine. Not only are the pickles tasty, but they also provide a great example of the diversity of ferments that exist beyond the conventional western repertoire.
