Fermentation is one of the oldest methods of food preservation. All over the world it is used for the creation and the preservation of food, including beer, wine, sauerkraut, kimchi, sour pickles, grains, yogurt, etc.

UConn Extension is offering a fermentation workshop, where participants will learn the principles of fermentation and how it is used to create sauerkraut and kimchi. This is a hands on workshop, so participation numbers will be limited.
