Always wondered about how to make kombucha or sauerkraut, or how to dry and store vegetables and herbs? Artisanal food preservation methods will be explained and demonstrated in this two part workshop taught by a local expert, Ann Rose. Topics will include clean technology and food safety principles, how to ferment foods, make vinegar, build a root cellar, store eggs without a fridge, food drying, and how to make a solar dehydrator. Participants should plan to attend both workshops as clean technology and food safety is key. You'll have your own jar of sauerkraut to take home.
Ann Rose retired from a full time nursing career 16 years ago to live off grid and practice organic farming on her farm in Lansing. She has used knowledge of food preservation passed down from her grandmother, learned through her nursing training and career, practical experience, and some "trial and error," to use her own words. Ann has also been a grant writer for the local nonprofit, GLAD, and in conjunction with the town raised funds to purchase land and build the 77 acre Lansing Creeper Trail Park. She also started the Lansing Farmers' Market five years ago which has been a great opportunity for local entrepreneurs.
