This is a workshop I ran yesterday on gut health and making easy fermented vegetables. The participants were primary school staff and I ran two sessions as part of the school’s well being day.

I talked about gut health, gut bacteria and the health benefits of including fermented foods in our diets. I took along jars of different vegetables which I’d fermented and the group really seemed to enjoy tasting them and selecting the flavours they liked. They then had a go at using the different flavouring ingredients to make their own jars of brined carrot sticks to take away to ferment at home.

All the participants were enthusiastic and seemed to enjoy getting stuck in! I hope this workshop will inspire them to continue to experiment with making and eating fermented foods.

If you are interested in me running a similar workshop for your organisation or group, please do get in touch.
