Join Piedmont Picnic Project at Rebus Works for this 1.5-hour hands-on fermentation workshop -- great for beginners looking for an introduction to fermentation or experienced fermenters looking to learn new methods! We'll learn everything you need to know about how to ferment your own yogurt at home and turn it into delicious fro yo - all with no special equipment.  Enjoy samples of each of the products we learn about and take home handouts to get you started at home.  We're excited to be at Rebus Works for this workshop - a hub for local food and community as well as a very cool indoor space! As we taste and try our hand at fermentation, we'll also learn more about the history and traditions around frozen treats in our local Raleigh community. Skills you'll learn:  The basics of fermentation, including how the process works, potential benefits, choosing a fermentation vessel, choosing ingredients, and creating the ideal environment for your ferment.  Everything you need to know to start fermenting yogurt at home. How to turn yogurt into yummy frozen yogurt using several simple techniques - old and new!  What you'll take away: New knowledge and hands-on skills to ferment your own yogurt at home.  Recipes and instruction sheets to get you started on your fermentation journey. Lots of yogurt and fro-yo samples from class will go with you in your belly!     This workshop is the first of many we plan to host at Rebus Works - each designed to each teach an important skill for producing and preserving your own food!   About the instructors: We believe you'll enjoy your food more if you know the story behind it!  Here's how we'll each help you do that.   Elizabeth Weichel has a background in public history and specializes in local history. She'll help us to remember the ways that everything old is new again - growing, preserving, and fermenting your own food might be trendy now, but it's nothing new! Learn how it all fits into the larger story of our local history.   Amanda Matson has carved out her own little urban homestead right here in Raleigh - growing, foraging, preserving, and fermenting her own food all on a small lot in the city -- working toward total fruit and veggie independence and a nearly all-local table. She'll teach you all of the hands-on skills you need to have your own little taste of homestead life - whether it's adding home-fermented goodies to your table or farming your entire yard!
