Thanks Roslyn. A scary prospect given the contamination risk. Whey seems an odd ingredient as do Chia seeds.

I live too far away from you to do your course and even though probably I wouldn't attempt any more ferments (too many ended in the compost) I would like to know more just for interest.

Some day I hope that you will do an informative post.

Elaine asked about fermenting foods that are not usually fermented, with jams and sauces as examples. The main reason is control over ingredients. For example I ferment fruit jams that are simply fruit, chia seeds and whey. The jam is probiotic and it makes a tasty addition to my diet, plus there is no sugar and nothing artificial.

Could you explain why fermenting usually-unfermented sauces, jams etc is a good idea? Getting the right organisms without contamination is always a bit tricky so fermenting straightforward preserves sounds a complication too far.

Actually, a separate post will make it simpler to follow the thread as different members add their experiences and questions.

Ooops! Cost is $60 which includes a workbook and morning tea. Have edited events.

Again, probably a good idea to mention if the workshop is free or if there is a charge.

Good luck. I hope you get good attendance.
