Sign Up For Fermenting Workshop On March 3rd
DIY Lacto Fermenting Workshop: Water Ferments

You can also join 24 Carrot Health at another upcoming fermenting workshop at Urban Acres!  The classes we’ve had so far have been great!

Once you start making these fermented foods, life won’t be the same. These preparations tend to be the gateway for fermenting fanatics. There’s really no going wrong with these simple preparations that add tons of flavor and complexity to everyday meals.

Have you heard about water kefir? They are cool jelly like grains, really a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast), that turn sugar water into a probiotic drink. In this workshop I will show you how to make rejuvelac with sprouted rye, water kefir, coconut water kefir with a secondary ferment, and lacto-fermented ginger ale. Samples will be provided of all to taste.

Participants will receive samples of coconut water and ginger ale in swing top bottles to take home to complete fermentation, water kefir grains to take home, and detailed instructions and recipes.

This class is more expensive because the swing top bottles for take home samples are expensive – about $3.50 each, and water kefir grains with full instructions on how to care for them.

Participants must register by the evening of March 1st and pay in advance so 24 Carrot Health may purchase and provide materials for the workshop.

PLEASE NOTE: Because workshop materials must be purchased in advance, they are unable to refund your purchase.

WHEN: Saturday, March 3rd, 3 – 5pm

WHERE: Urban Acres Farm Store – 1301 B West Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208

COST: $60/personclass is limited to 12 people

Why Ferment?

from 24CarrotHealth.com

The focus of these classes is the basic process of transformation, which mainly involve creating conditions in which naturally occurring wild organisms thrive and proliferate. Fermentation makes food more digestible and nutritious, preserves nutrients, improves the bioavailability of minerals present in foods, and creates new nutrients.

Live unpasteurized fermented foods carry beneficial bacteria directly into into our digestive systems where they exist symbiotically breaking down food and aiding digestion. By eating a variety of live fermented foods one you promote diversity among microbial cultures in your body.

Biodiversity is increasingly recognized as critical to the survival of larger scale eco-systems. Your body is an eco-system that can function most efficiently when populated by diverse species of microorganisms.
