Post Oil Solutions fall series of workshops are designed to help people learn various ways of preserving and putting food by so as to be able to increasingly eat local food year round.
Thus, following our recent canning workshops, the group will host a Lacto-Fermentation Workshop Sunday, October 4 at 1 p.m. at Christ Church on Main Street in Saxtons River.
Lacto-fermentation happens when the starches and sugars in vegetables and fruit convert to lactic acid by friendly lactic-acid producing bacteria. Using seasonably available produce, we will prepare some vegetables to take home and ferment.
Participants will also leave with some simple recipes. Cabbage, salt and canning jars will be provided. Vermont's Local Banquet publishers, Meg Lucas and Barbi Schreiber, will conduct the workshop.
Our new fee schedule is $2/$20 sliding scale with no one refused for lack of funds. However, pre-registration and payment is required by calling 869-2141. Payment at the door is $20, firm, and only if there is room.
