Homemade yogurt is a healthy source of protein, calcium, magnesium and other essential vitamins with active bacterial cultures that aid digestion. We will use grass-fed local milk to make rich, creamy, delicious yogurt with equipment found in your kitchens. Each participant will take home a pint of yogurt to use as a multi-generation yogurt culture to create your own yogurt at home.
Lacto fermentation is a traditional way to preserve food and stay healthy. In this class you will learn how lactobacillus and its other bacteria friends make one of our favorite foods: yogurt! We will explore the history, tradition and health benefits of yogurt as well as have a hands-on opportunity to make and taste the yogurt you will take home. BONUS: You will have an opportunity to taste water Kefir and natural soda, both delicious fermented drinks.
