In this Village Vancouver ElderGreens workshop with Alyssa Kohlman from Fermentoring, we'll make curtido - a traditional El Salvadorean lightly fermented cabbage, onion and carrot salad seasoned with oregano and hot pepper. Curtido is a traditional topping for pupusas (cheese-stuffed tortillas) and also great with fish, black beans, burritos or quesadillas. Participants will learn the basics of lacto-fermenting vegetables and go home with a jar of curtido to finish fermenting at home. Please bring a wide-mouth 500ml mason jar, cutting board, large knife, and large bowl if you're able to, and wear clothes you don't mind preparing food in.
Adults and families with children 10 years and older are welcome. All minors must be accompanied by a caregiver. We'll have a Community Seed Library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds. By donation ($0 - $10), plus a $7 materials fee. Free for Seniors (50 and over).
Register by Friday, Feb 10th here or by email: email@example.com. Limited space, early registration advised.
