At this class on food preservation, you will learn what vinegar is and the chemistry behind the process. Learn how to turn anything into vinegar, even bananas!
The class will include a demo of making banana vinegar, a viewing of vinegar “mothers” and tasting samples of various scrap vinegars. We will also touch on the benefits of fermented food and how adding these foods to our diets are a benefit to our overall health.
Emily Makrez is the owner of F-Word Farm: a place for farming, foraging and fermenting in Dracut. Her interest in food took her to Seattle to pursue a Master's degree in nutrition at Bastyr University, but a love of New England brought her back home to start her own farm and delve deeply into the world of fermentation (lacto, koji, vinegar, & alcoholic) and foraging. Emily focuses on using every last bit of what nature provides and making it taste delicious.
