Kraut-Chi and Kombucha Workshop
Saturday, November 16, 10:00am-1:00pm
HEX Ferments, 529 East Belvedere Avenue, Baltimore, MD
Join us for an engaging (and delicious) workshop with Slow Food Snail of Approval Winner HEX Ferments. You’ve seen HEX Ferments products at countless stores and farmers markets in the DC-area, now come see where the magic is made by joining us for this awesome event at HEX’s Baltimore HQ!
HEX Ferments Co-Founders Meaghan and Shane Carpenter will lead us through a hands-on workshop, during which we’ll learn to make a Kraut-Chi together and visually walk through the steps of making kombucha tea. Locally grown-organic produce, organic and local-organic spices, unrefined sea salt and jars will all be provided as part of the event. All participants will go home with a jar we make together in class to see through the final stages of fermentation, a copy of the recipe, and step-by-step instructions and list of resources for more exploration.
