How can I preserve my garden harvests?...

This is the most common question I get on my YouTube channel, and for a good reason! We put so much love, care and attention into growing delicious crops and then out of nowhere, we become inundated with fresh fruit and vegetables. We have to get creative with cooking courgettes, drying beans and storing potatoes. 


There are, of course, other ways of preserving food, such as canning, making chutneys and the good old freezer. But what about fermentation?

Fermentation, I believe, is one of the simplest and most exciting ways of preserving our homegrown produce. But the trickiest part is having the confidence to get started. 


The good news is that fermentation is both easy and fun to learn, and I have teamed up with my colleague Sam Cooper to create an online course that teaches you everything you need to know to get started with fermentation over the 12 lessons.

We have designed it to be as informative and practical as possible, and within the first hour of enrollment, you will already be able to start your first ferments! 

Fermentation not only is excellent for your health (probiotic and makes food more bioavailable), but it is also an excellent way to enjoy new flavours from your prized harvests.

You will also have a chance to create some real showstoppers for when you have guests over, such as lacto-berries, tomato salsa and my personal favourite, sparkling sodas that are by far the tastiest low-alcohol drink I have had to date!

By the end of the course, to which you get lifetime access and can be done at your own pace, you will not only have so much delicious food and drink to enjoy, but you will also know how to adapt the recipes and techniques to use for other crops. Included for all of the recipes are detailed write-ups, 

Starting from Scratch

This course is suitable for anyone who wants to start fermentation, or only has very limited knowledge. Each lesson with build up your confidence and knowledge.

Step-by-step Guides

Being practical ourselves, we have made sure that we show you clear step-by-step instructions for every recipe. Plus each lesson has a downloadable pdf.

Your imagination is the limit when it comes to fermentation, and we really hope you will see just how much potential fermentation has to truly celebrate the food we grow.

Technique Driven and Confidence Boosting

You will learn all of the essential techniques and skills for successful fermentation. This also includes the safety side (please see base of the page), understanding all the core principles of fermentation, and how to apply everything you learn to create the most delicious food and drinks!

The course is taught in a fun and informal manner, with Sam leading the way and Huw asking the all-important questions (being new to fermentation himself). If at any point you have a question, you can add it to the lesson and we will get back to you.

Here are some examples of the things you will learn:

  • How to work out alcohol percentages when making beer and wine
  • The incredible world of lacto-fermentation
  • An easy way to store garlic longer
  • How to make a delicious sauerkraut using courgette
  • Why sparkling sodas are a must!
  • Make an easy (and nutritious) breakfast that serves 3 days!
