Sauerkraut and gut health @ Hawthorn Community House
Aug 13 @ 19:00 – 20:30

Sauerkraut is finely cut cabbage that (combined with other vegetables) has been fermented by various lactic acid bacteria. It has a long shelf life and a distinctive sour flavour, both of which result from the lactic acid that forms when the bacteria ferment the sugars in the cabbage. Join them to learn all the ins and outs of obtaining great gut health. This workshop will cover the history of sauerkraut, how to make it, what can go wrong with it, and how to fix it. They will also cover how to make it even healthier and tastier with the addition of different seasonal vegetables.
