Perfect introduction to wild fermentation: why you should eat your ferments and how, about gut health and my own journey with it. We’ll start off the series using my favourite base for fermenting - honey and onto a basic, wild mead. We'll move onto brining vegetables, and krauts. These are the ferments that don’t require any special ingredients or equipment. Go home with 3 jars to ferment at home. A jar of honey and garlic ready to wake your senses and excite you with it’s immense power, a jar of brined vegetables and of course, your simple kraut and leave the mead to ferment and drink at completion of the course.
