Pickling and Fermenting

£185.00 5 hours 45 minutes

Fermentation is the magical process of transforming a food product into something tastier, longer lasting and better for our health. It’s no coincidence that many of our favourite foods are made using fermentation techniques. Wine, cheese, beer and bread all contain complex flavour profiles which stimulate our palates and leave us wanting more.

Fermenting at home allows us to experiment with these interesting flavours as well as preserving waste food and boosting our gut health. It’s no wonder fermentation is fast becoming a popular new hobby for food lovers.

Description

Why ferment?

  • Preserve – This ancient practise has allowed cultures around the world for centuries to preserve fresh vegetables and fruits throughout the winter.
  • Flavour – Fermentation adds a unique tangy sourness to foods that is delicious and marries well with many other flavours.
  • Health benefits- Keeps our gut flora healthy and varied thus aiding our digestive health.
  • As some of the natural sugars and starches have already been broken down, fermented foods are easier to digest and also allow our bodies to absorb nutrients more easily.
  • Shown to improve mood and even symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Consuming fermented foods as part of a healthy, balanced diet also appears to be associated with a lower risk of heart disease.
