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,
