DIY Veggie Fermentation!

10


10 simbi per session - Virtual OK

If you love the tangy tastes of fermentation (think pickles, kimchi, sourkraut, etc) you'll love fermenting your own vegetables. Whether for preservation or simply for the taste, fermentation is a great way to get more nutrition out of your produce, and make it last longer!

Your body will thank you! Fermentation grows probiotics that are great for your health. Fermented foods are full of nutrition and interesting flavors!

I will teach you how simple and fun it can be to ferment your own vegetables. Develop your own recipes to suit your taste buds. Ferment a little, or ferment a lot.

Training & Qualifications


I have several years experience in the art of home fermentation, including kombucha, jun, pickled veggies, kimchi, kraut, wines, and other raw, fermented vegetables.

Availability & Preferences


Weeknights and some weekends

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Dirk is very knowledgeable and fun to work with. My veggies are still fermenting, but they look great. He also brought me a Kombucha SCOBY and gave me... his recipe, which was much appreciated. I'm super excited to consume this fermented bounty!show more

Great lesson in fermentation! I have an abundance of cabbage and asked specifically for a cabbage recipe. I didn't know cabbage could be so exciting. ... Can't wait to experiment!show more

About Dirk McGurk

I'm an artist, engineer, musician, and farmer from South New Jersey. I'm certified in Permaculture Design, and I'm a practicing biomedical engineer. Over the past 6 years, I've been trying to reduce... my footprint and increase my handprint. I like the idea of not leaving a trace, but I aspire to leave a positive trace to make up for the many years that our society has been degrading our natural systems. I try to stay active in community groups and projects that care for the earth and each other. I also love to skateboard, play guitar, make computer music, hike, hunt mushrooms, forage wild edibles and medicinals, ride my dirtbike, and I'm also working on learning Russian!show more
