Shelby County Extension presents Pickling and Fermenting Vegetables
September 26th 4:00-6:00pm
Fee: $10.00 for supplies
Class will be held at the Shelby County Extension Office

 

Remember how 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? Science is proving more and more today that was a good thing for them to eat fermented foods. Its good for our gut health and digestion. We eat so many processed foods and eat out a lot and more and more folks are developing colon cancer and other types of cancers from this. Fermented foods along with our other fruits, vegetables and meats are what we need.
This class will be a little different to what has been taught in food preservation before. We will discuss the proper preservation procedures for processing vegetables and will also discuss canning high and low acid foods. We will make fermented cabbage and other vegetables and talk about the benefits as well as we will make some other type of pickled products. Each person will take a jar of each home. This will be taught by Angela Treadaway – Regional Extension Agent with the Shelby County Extension System.
