Giant deli-style dill pickles, crusty sourdough baguettes, perfectly tart yet creamy yogurt, sweet and bubbly home-made root beer: all are delicacies enjoyed thanks to fermentation. Join Slow Food Urban San Diego on Thursday, May 10 from 6 – 8 PM for a hands-on celebration of lacto-fermentation. There will be a variety of foods to sample in addition to an open discussion about fermenting. Make your own pickled carrots (courtesy of Blind Lady Ale House) and see how easy it is to ferment for flavor, economy, and health. If you are experienced in the art, please bring your stories! Stogsdill’s Pickles, the community expert in vegetable ferments, will be in attendance and available to answer any questions. Cost to attend is $15 for members and $20 for the general public. All proceeds will be donated to Seeds@City Urban Farm.
Please RSVP by Monday, May 7 to reserve your pickling jar!
