Fun with Fermentation

From the science of sauerkraut to kefir  and kimchi, with some pickling thrown in for good measure, there was plenty to learn about, sample, and try out at the first Transition Palo Alto Fermentation Fest. Gary Fleeman gave a snap course in fermentation chemistry and the joys and health benefits of real fermented sauerkraft. Victoria Armigo showed how to make kefir, and even shared some starters for people to take home and try. Then it was all hands-on – pickling beets and peppers, and preparing a big batch of kimchi.
