Minnesota is famous for its short growing season, which makes preserving the local harvest of utmost importance. The owners of You Betcha Kimchi
, Joe and Iman, began their journey as farmers wanting to support themselves year-round by producing a product that would keep through the winter into the next harvest season. As their business has grown and shifted, they now contract directly with local organic farmers for nearly all of their kimchi ingredients.
In this class, you’ll learn the basics of vegetable fermentation along with the important impact it can have on the local food system. Learn how this company supports local farmers through fermentation and how you can do the same at home. Iman will demonstrate simple fermentation techniques while you enjoy a kimchi grilled cheese snack along with a local brew.
