    Probiotics, nutrient density and preservation are the cornerstones of fermented foods. AND, they are easy to make, delicious, and an excellent addition to your pantry. In this hands-on class you’ll learn what makes “lacto” foods good for you, and how to make and store them safely. We’ll finish up with preparing two recipes to take home and enjoy. Class Fee is $35.
