Pickling and Fermentation Workshop

Tuscaloosa County Office, 2513 7th Street, Tuscaloosa Co. Courthouse Annex Tuscaloosa AL, 35401; Tuscaloosa County 692.4 miles

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 are more what we need to help protect our gut health and possibly prevent some types of cancer.

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.

Class limited to 25 people

Location: Tuscaloosa County Extension Office, 2513 7th Street, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401
