Fermenting at home will be offered Oct. 20. Making sauerkraut couldn’t be easier. Students will learn all about fermenting with Jen, the extensions’s master food preserver-in training. Students will be tasting some fermented foods, and each participant will get to take some sauerkraut with them to ferment at home. The cost is $25.

Participants must preregister and pre-pay for each class and class sizes are limited.
