On April 9th, we will be offering 2 (identical) sessions of a class on fermentation. Please plan to join us at the one which best suits your busy schedule.    

Fermentation is an age old process that transforms food into a very delicious and more nutritious product as it also helps preserve the food.  Come and learn the modern techniques to safely ferment a variety of foods. We will be discussing brine strength and giving other hints and helps so you can safely and successfully ferment at home.
(Details to follow on what we will be fermenting....)
Handouts with instructions and ‘recipes’ will be provided to all registrants.  This is also a great opportunity to bring your questions for our Master Food Preservers! 

Each class is limited to the first 24 registrants.  Please register and pay online by April 8, 2015.  Closed toe shoes are recommended.  We have ‘loaner’ aprons if you don’t bring one from home. 

If you have any questions, please write us at: uccemfp@ucdavis.edu
