ferment

The Nutritious Fig – a healthy eating consultancy from Broadstairs – is running a series of workshops on home fermenting.

What is home fermenting?

Home fermenting is a cover-all phrase for a number of different techniques for creating (often very delicious) probiotic and/or preserved foods.

Last year my mum introduced me to water kefir. I like to combine mine with sliced lemons to produce some of the best lemonade you have ever tasted. It is my understanding that the Fermented Drinks workshop will cover water (or possibly milk) kefir.  It’s pretty easy to make and tastes nice. According to what I have read it is also good for you, so there’s that too.
