Krautsourcing Day

8 October, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

As local Winter-Spring cabbages arrive by the box load to the CERES Fair Food warehouse, we’re excited to be celebrating our inaugural Krautsourcing Day on October 8th.

Krautsourcing Day is a quasi-festival of fermenting where Melbournians gather together to shred, salt and schmoosh cabbage into jars before leaving them to ferment for 4-6 weeks. And of course, everyone shares the spoils.

The Krautsourcing Day idea is similar to Crowdsaucing Day held in April this year, only this time, CERES Fair Food will bring locally grown cabbages to you, your friends, family and neighbours. Then together you can make all kinds of sauerkraut. If the idea of fermenting in a social setting lights your fire then Krautsourcing could be right up your alley. Perhaps it’s the invitation you need to get started, or to share your existing skills with others.

How does Krautsourcing Day work?
Use the “invite friends” button or share this event to organise your own group of friends and/or family for a wonderful Saturday afternoon of being up close and personal with cabbage.

We will provide you with the resources, links, information and know-how to create your own sauerkraut and learn more about the benefits of fermented foods.

You’ll be able to order cabbages come October through the CERES Fair Food website: http://www.ceresfairfood.org.au along with your regular order or as a one off (just create an account through the website).

You can join us on Saturday October 8th of the official Krautsourcing day, or choose a day that most suits you. Be sure to get in while the cabbages last!

Come kraut with us in October!

*Warning: Sauerkraut is a gateway ferment. Its ease belies a hidden risk of addiction, and the likelihood of encouraging a deep and abiding ferment fervor. No vegetable is safe, should this inoculation succeed.

If you have any questions about Krautsourcing, post them on the page or email Monique: foodhosts@ceresfairfood.org.au
