Presenter: Angelica Hollstadt, Angelica’s Garden
Saturday 1-b

Vegetable fermentation—once our great grandmother’s pantry staple—now is the hippest trend in food preservation. Science is exploring the complexity of the human microbiome and the role that raw cultured vegetables play in maintaining a healthy microbiome. We’ll look at the science behind the natural process of culturing vegetables and delve into the art of fermentation, exploring the fascinating microbial world that turns a crisp head of cabbage into succulent sauerkraut and much more.
