Hej! Glad to have you here. Let's ferment together!

Fermentation workshops 2024

You can learn how to ferment at my workshops Kraut und Rüben in collaboration with Hof Eggers and Local Veg. We ferment regional organic vegetables on a historic farm in small groups, including a tasting of ready ferments. From May at the latest, we even harvest the vegetables ourselves - it doesn't get any fresher than this.

You can book your spot via the Hof Eggers website. I'm really looking forward to new groups, inspiring workshops and the vegetable season!

Principle #1 of fermentation: Do your homework. It's like this.

Fermentation isn't rocket science, but you need to grasp a few basics before the veggies go into the jar so you're producing for consumption and not for the compost.

The biochemical understanding for amateurs you gain by reading my articles here will help you against the fear of bacteria and edible molds. Because suddenly you no longer have to avoid them, but they will even become your friends.

Fermentation recipes

Fermentation is preservation. So look around, what is growing in your area and put exactly that into the jar. My recipes are classified by seasonality, which makes it easier to find.

The recipes on these pages are categorized in multiple ways to make it easier for you to find them and organize yourself. I have also marked each tutorial as beginner or advanced. Then you can get started based on your experience level and no frustration stands a chance!

My son has also helped me name children's ferments. He started doing that at age 2, so his recommendations are applicable to almost all ages. He does like to eat spicy, though - if that's different for your kid, just use less chili than the recipe calls for.

Have fun with with my wild, living creatures... uh, cultures 😆
