"Thanks for sharing your experience, we have since made kvass, fermented red cabbage, fermented kohlrabi, fermented chill-garlic hot sauce and I will soon start on the Koji, just need to ensure I have a few days with lesser action than normal". Ellen Schindler

“Thought the workshop was a great mix of theory and lecture as well as hands on.  I've been to classes before where there is minimal to no hands on, and I think that can provide some really great information for people.  They get a better understanding of things such as, how hard to massage the cabbage when making kraut, how much you really need to pack in the miso, etc.".
