If you enjoy the science of fermentation, then join us for Fermentation Fridays! Each class will be held from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. 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. Each class has a hands-on portion and in some cases, we will be preparing a product that you can ferment at home.

Join us for one or all of the classes. Check out the schedule below.

Sauerkraut – March 17, 2023

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. If you are new to fermented food learning to prepare sauerkraut is a great way to get started!

Kimchi – April 14, 2023

Kimchi is a Korean dish of salted, fermented vegetables, often based around cabbage. It generally includes seasonings like garlic, chili, and ginger. It has a sour, salty, savory, and spicy flavor. In class, we will prepare the vegetables for fermenting and then pack them in a jar to be fermented at home. In just 5 days you will have delicious Kimchi to enjoy!
