Fermentation and Pickling of Vegetables – Calhoun County

Calhoun County Office, County Administration Building, 1702 Noble Street, Suite 108, Anniston, AL 36201; Calhoun County

Remember how your grandmother and great grandmother use to have crocks setting around with sauerkraut or fermented pickles in them? Or do you remember helping them cut the cabbage up or get the cucumbers ready? Those were the good old days! Science is proving more and more today that fermented foods are good for our gut health and digestive system.

We eat so many processed foods and eat out a lot more than our grandparents did. Fermented foods along with a diet higher in fruits and vegetables is what we need to help protect our gut health and immune system. In this class, we will discuss the proper preservation procedures for preparing fermented foods and then how to process low and high acid foods. Each person will make a jar of sauerkraut to carry home and ferment.
