About this event

Each class will be held from 1 to 3 pm at the Currituck Extension Office. The fee for each class is $15.00. There is so much fun fermenting to do! Learn why these products are fermented, and how to care for them safely. With each class, participants will receive the necessary equipment to ensure their fermented product can be stored safely while it ferments. Join us for one or all four classes. Check out the schedule below.

Sauerkraut September 7th

In this class, we will get you started fermenting cabbage so that in just a few short weeks you will have homemade sauerkraut. This dish makes a great companion to hot dogs and bratwurst.

Sourdough September 21st

There is nothing like a delicious sandwich made with sourdough bread. Learn to make your very own sourdough bread and how to keep your starter alive. All participants will leave with a starter to ensure their breadmaking journey is successful!

Ginger Beer October 12th

Ginger beer is a delicious spicy beverage perfect on its own or added to mixed drinks. Learn to prepare this beverage at home and we will even get you started with your first batch during class.

Kombucha October 26th

In this class, we will discover the interworking of this delicious probiotic drink. You will get your own starter colony of bacteria and yeast to try your hand at brewing your very own batch.
