On October 13, 2016 Master Food Preservers will offer 2 identical sessions of a class on fermentation.  Plan to join us at the session which best suits your schedule. 

Learn about the benefits of lacto-fermentation as we make old fashioned kosher dills. Kombucha, a fermented tea, is very popular and can be expensive to buy. We can help you get started in making your own cost effective tea. And we will be using a boiling water canner to can corn relish.

Each class is limited to the first 24 registrants.  Please register and pay online by October 12, 2016 and bring a printed or digital copy of your successful proof of payment email to class.  Closed toe shoes are recommended.  We have ‘loaner’ aprons if you don’t bring one from home. 

Cancellation Policy:  No refunds one week prior to workshop as material will already have been purchased.  Thank you!

We will also be offering free testing of your pressure canning gauges at this class.

If you have any questions, please write us at: uccemfp@ucdavis.edu or contact us through our website at: http://ucanr.edu/sites/MFPOC/Got_A_Question/.
