Fermented Food: How to Make Sauerkraut
This event was held on Saturday, September 14, 2019.
Ed is ready to divulge his grandmother’s recipe!
Fermented foods are currently enjoying a renaissance. Kimchi, kombucha, kefir… and sauerkraut! Come learn to make a tastier, healthier homemade version of this classic topping.
This class will give you everything you need to make a 5-gallon container of sauerkraut. All materials are included (a 5-gallon food-grade pail, a wood circle cut, a weight, and all ingredients). Ed will walk you through all of the steps to create the perfect sauerkraut, and in just a few weeks it will be ready to eat!
Tickets are available though September 7th. You can purchase them in the farm store (weekends), or online with a small processing fee. Each ticket is $40 ($30 for supplies and $10 for the class), and you are welcome to bring along a guest to help you for an additional $15.
This class will take place in the Plummer house. Space is limited, so be sure to sign up!
DATE: Saturday, September 14
TIME: 10:00 – 3:00
COST: $40 for the krautmaker, $15 if you’d like to bring a friend along to help you

A FEW NOTES
5 gallons is equal to roughly 30 pounds of sauerkraut. You can make less if desired, but it’s great to learn to make it in bulk just as our great grandparents would have done. It’s also great to share! You are also welcome to bring your own pottery crock if you prefer to use it over the provided container.
