Fermenting, Pickling & Preserving

This workshop is all about giving you an introduction to ways that you can stockpile your pantry full of amazing produce. There is huge satisfaction that comes with cracking the lid on a jar of something you have made from scratch, to be enjoyed year-round or shared as gifts.

Preserving, pickling and fermenting help to reduce your reliance on packaged food, decrease food wastage and food miles and avoid the chemicals that can leach from the lining of tins.

  • Introduction to fermenting, including the history, health benefits,           equipment and processes. Make your own jar of sauerkraut and kimchi to take home – tailored to your taste!
  • Introduction to seasonal preserving including how to sterilise jars and heat process your preserves so they keep safely.
