About the Event

Helpful resources & links:

Remember the crocks of sauerkraut and fermented pickles your grandmother and great grandmother always had around? It sounds stinky – and maybe a little scary – but the tangy cabbage and crunchy pickles of your childhood are fermented. Today, science continues to find evidence that suggests fermented foods benefit our digestive health. These days we eat significantly more processed foods than our grandparents did, but fermented foods* can help our body maintain healthy digestive and immune systems. Our Sept. 25 Ag & Stewardship Workshop is here to help!

Join us via LIVE webinar from 4 – 6 p.m. for Home Produce Fermentation, and prepare to ferment your way through the produce aisle. Food Safety & Quality Extension Agents Janice Hall and Angela Treadaway will lead the virtual workshop and discuss proper preservation procedures for preparing fermented foods and Kombucha, a fermented tea. Participants will have the opportunity to follow along with the webinar by creating and canning from home.

This is a free workshop, but registration is required. Please click here to register by Sept 18. A limited number of supply kits are available for $10 per person, which covers the cost of supplies. However, all participants will receive a supply list and can opt to provide their own supplies.

Home Fermentation is the September installation of the 2020 Agriculture & Stewardship Seminar Series. We are excited to present this event, which was originally scheduled for March 2020 and postponed due to COVID-19-related health and safety concerns. This event is presented in partnership by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and the Town of Pike Road's Ag & Stewardship Club, an ENHANCE initiative committee.
