From our organizers:
Fermentation is one of our oldest food processing methods. Scientifically known as zymology, it refers to the conversion of carbohydrates into alcohols, carbon dioxide, yeast, or bacteria. We’ll cover the basic science of how to ferment tea to make kombucha, how it can improve your gut health, and ways to brew it yourself. You’ll try your hand at preparing a drink and some fruit leathers. All participants will take home recipes and a starter culture.
